Know him. Read him. He is our American saint. May God be praised for this holy vocation.
Once upon a time I had a JFK layover and took a cab to St. Patrick's Cathedral to pray before the tomb of Francis Cardinal Spellman, located underneath the sanctuary. Alone I entered the crypt under the main altar and stood in utter awe before the tombs of the Cardinal Archbishops of the New York See: it was a moment I will never forget. There I also noticed the tomb of this twentieth century giant, Fulton Sheen.
