Accident kills one priest, injures a 2nd, & Baltimore Cardinal Keeler

Please pray for the repose of the soul of Father Bernard Quinn, a retired priest from the U.S. diocese of Harrisburg, PA who died in a car crash in Terni, a city about 60 miles outside of Rome.

Another priest, Monsignor Thomas Smith, 75, a pastor of St. Joseph parish in Lancaster, PA, was driving and broke several rib. Cardinal William Keeler of Baltimore, MD was a passenger and broke an ankle. Both are in a local hospital near the scene of the accident.

Hat tip to MK for the link.

You're welcome. Cardinal Keeler was my Cardinal when I lived in Baltimore, and Father Quinn was from my current diocese.

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
