‘Blessed Example’


Thanks for Christie Chicoine’s article on the 15th Anniversary FDNY Memorial Service at St. Patrick’s Cathedral (CNY, Sept. 15).

Especially poignant was Father Thomas Colucci’s observation that the fire department and the priesthood are “wonderfully connected.” It brought to mind Father Mychal Judge, O.F.M., the FDNY chaplain, who was ministering to the members of the department that day, and lost his life. What a blessed example of that “connection” Father Judge was.
