Father Rutler offers recollections of deceased acquaintances

Catholic World News - August 13, 2010

National Review questions Father George William Rutler about his new book, Cloud of Witnesses, in which he offers his memories of some of the prominent and not-so-prominent people he has known. The book is promising not only because Father Rutler is a witting and engaging writer, but also because he has had an extraordinarily wide range of noteworthy acquaintances: from American politicians and European noblemen to famous Catholics. In the last category, he mentions his memories of Mother Teresa:

My favorite was when she asked me to correct a mistaken report in a newspaper. I said that I’d pray about it and write. She said, “No, we need this right away. I pray. You write.”
