Cardinal Lustiger, RIP

Although it has now been a week since his death, I must recognize the passing of this great man of God. Born to Jewish parents in 1926 (his mother died in Auschwitz), he was the archbishop of Paris from 1981 until 2005, and invited Europeans and all Catholics to "open wide the doors to Christ."

Here is a link to George Weigel's tribute.
