Number 16:

Cardinal John J. O'Connor

Archbishop of New York and acknowledged leader of the conservative element for the Church in America whose efforts are paying great dividends for Christ and His Church

   Today we bring you the 16th person selected out of the TOP 100 CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY. The voters chose Cardinal John Joseph O'Connor, the beloved Archbishop of New York who has been an outspoken defender for the Sanctity of Life, the Holy Father and the Church's conservative force in America. As shepherd to nearly two and a half million Catholics for the past sixteen years, and respected by non-Catholics of every ethnicity as well, he has emulated the holiness of the man he succeeded - Cardinal Terence Cooke.

16.   Cardinal John J. O'Connor

At last the bishops are going to consider placing Jesus back where He belongs:
Front and Center!

    In today's editorial, we rejoice over the news that the bishops are going to seriously consider returning Jesus to His proper place in the sanctuary. Finally, after thirty-plus years, they realize the ill-advised architectural experiment and denuding of the sanctuary was a big mistake. Now if they will just listen, we have more on our wish list that all loyal Catholics would like to see restored as well - from Gregorian Chant to Latin to less Eucharistic Ministers. After all, what's the rush? Didn't Jesus ask us in Matthew 24: 40, "Could you not, then, watch one hour with Me?"

In every Catholic church, let the Light of the world shine forth!

"Then Jesus stopped and commanded that he should be brought to Him. And when he drew near He asked him, saying, 'What wouldst thou have Me do for thee?' And he said, 'Lord, that I may see.' And Jesus said to him, 'Receive thy sight, thy faith has saved thee.' And at once he received his sight, and followed Him, glorifying God. And all the people upon seeing it gave praise to God."

Luke 17: 1-4
