Archbishop Philip Matthew Hannan Quotes
“All problems are reducible to personal problems. If you solve those, you automatically take care of community problems.”
“Charity binds us to perfection.”
“From my perspective… I will accomplish in death what I could not in life because as priests we are most fully alive when we die. If we don’t feel that way, we certainly have not served the cause of Christ as we were meant to. In the final spiritual analysis, to fulfill the will of God, a priest must die in life as did his own Son. And when that time comes, with the grace of God, I am ready.”
