More Stories About Father Mychal Judge

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:

Religion correspondent Barbara Bradley Hagerty, who always produces thoughtful stories, had an excellent profile of Father Judge.

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?
