There are so many good news articles about the 10th anniversary of 9/11, but two that Twitter friends have shared are particularly good, and they both relate to Father Mychal Judge, the first official fatality on 9/11 and the main subject of my column this month for the Catholic Post.
They are both NPR stories, and wonderful to read, but even better to listen to:
Another story, titled “Bury His Heart, But Not His Love,” is beautiful, and includes long excerpts from the funeral homily given by his friend and fellow Franciscan, Father Michael Duffy.
A Facebook friend mentioned that she felt the 9/11 coverage seemed excessive. Perhaps I haven’t been too tied into media the last few days to be overwhelmed by it, but I find it cathartic and helpful to remember. What about you?
