Cardinal Egan, priests recall 9/11
August 15, 2011
Cardinal Edward Egan, who served as Archbishop of New York from 2000 to 2009, has joined with several priests, rescuers, and others in offering reflections on the tenth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks.
“If I had to sum up 9/11, I would say it was a time in which people taught this nation and the world how to be strong and how to be willing to sacrifice themselves for others,” he said. “There was so much goodness there that the evil was, I think, not only conquered, it was smothered.”
