As Archbishop of Chicago, while I’m not a party to this exactly, you can be sure that I will be watching very carefully. Because, if your mission is what it’s supposed to be, then I am involved.



And most of all, I want to be involved in a way that will be helpful, but you have to tell me how… I think that the Jesuits and the directors of Loyola, and now I hope the directors of Trinity, won’t hesitate to say, ‘This is what we need, this is how you might help or this is how you’re getting in the way’…



But be sure that you’re in my prayers and that I feel part of this in the way that my office demands and limits. In such a way, however, that I will look at this and say, ‘Well there it is. That’s our mission, too - the common mission of all those involved in healthcare in Christ’s name’.
