051a cardinal inscensingCanons Regular in the Land of Lincoln

"His Eminence taught us that the sacred liturgy helps to bring our faith to its fulfillment."

One month has passed since Francis Cardinal George ended his earthly pilgrimage.

This past Sunday,May 17, at Chicago’s Holy Name Cathedral, His Eminence’s 'galero' was raised to the rafters in a centuries old tradition at the "Month’s Mind" Mass. As teary eyes gazed skyward at the ascending red hat, sacred music filled the Cathedral as the choir sang a hymn based on the motto of Cardinal George’s Episcopal Motto, Christo, Gloria in Ecclesia (To Christ be glory in the Church).

"We are a living legacy of this shepherd of souls."
— Rev. C. Frank Phillips, C.R.

At his final mass as Archbishop of Chicago, Francis Cardinal George told the congregation packed into the cathedral that he would point to them as evidence of his work: "At some point, Christ will question me: What have you done with my people? Are they holier because of your ministry? Are they more generous, more loving toward others? In short, you are my legacy."
