Biographer, Friends Reflect on Life and Legacy of Cardinal Francis George

Alumnus and author Michael Heinlein, B.A. 2008, returned to campus last Thursday to discuss his new biography on the late Cardinal Francis George, one of the most prominent figures in the modern Church in the United States. Joining the conversation was Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles and Mary FioRito, who shared their personal memories about Cardinal George’s faith, life, and legacy.

Glorifying Christ: The Life of Cardinal Francis E. George, O.M.I. published by Our Sunday Visitor earlier this year, was inspired by the cardinal’s episcopal motto: “To Christ be glory in the Church.” The event at Heritage Hall was co-sponsored by the Institute for Human Ecology and The Catholic Project. Stephen White, M.A. 2014, executive director of the project, led the discussion exploring what makes Cardinal George an example of servant leadership.
