2015 March For Life Vigil Mass Homily
 
There is a popular diner near the Cathedral of the Holy Cross.  One of the items on the menu is called “The Emergency Room” consisting of bacon, sausages, eggs, pancakes, french toast, hash browns.  The clientele are people from the hood, a few Archie and Edith Bunkers, Ralph and Alice Kramdens, cops and priests.  It’s the kind of place you could invite Pope Francis to.  Juke box music from the 50’s and 60’s adds to the atmosphere.  While having dinner there last week with Fr. O’Leary and Fr. Kickham, the phone rang.  I presumed it was a telemarketer.  It was Oprah Winfrey.  I almost had to order “the emergency room”.  She called to tell me she was reading cardinalseansblog and wanted to thank me for the comments I had published on the blog.
