Abp. Listecki on death of Cdl George: "I have lost a personal friend and mentor;" George "formed my episcopacy"

“The Church has lost a great servant, the Archdiocese of Chicago has lost a tremendous shepherd and I have lost a personal friend and mentor,” Archbishop Listecki shared. “I consider myself blessed to have been ordained a bishop by Cardinal George and then served as one of his auxiliaries. His insight into Church teachings, his love for the Church of Chicago and his commitment to Jesus Christ shaped and formed my episcopacy."

“I have often said that Cardinal George was the undeclared intellectual leader of the Conference of Catholic Bishops. We will all miss his voice, but we will continue to be shaped by his vision. May God welcome this servant into His Kingdom," he added.
