Father Mychal Judge

The director of St. Francis Inn in Philadelphia is Father Michael Duffy, OFM.  Father Michael is a native of Ashland, NH and gets very excited when we visit every summer.  Each day he wears a different New Hampshire t-shirt!  

Father Michael was close friends with Father Mychal Judge, OFM, the first official victim at the World Trade Center.  Father Michael was the homilist at Father Mychal's funeral Mass which was celebrated by the archbishop of New York and watched by millions around the world.  His homily is so beautiful and quite funny.  

You can read it here, you won't regret it.
