Quotes

... "By understanding creation, we can come closer to the Creator. It's an added spiritual responsibility," Montano told  NCR . "Justice for the earth is something that affects everybody. It's going to affect my daughter, my grandkids. It affects the poor in ways we are still trying to come to terms with. And it's our fault. So that's why we're here. It's on us to make a difference."
Thanks to a number of priests who also worked clandestinely, "I had the good fortune of having the Blessed Sacrament" which she kept hidden in bed sheets to secretly administer to people who were ill or dying
"They'll look around and say maybe I'm not as bad as people say I am , maybe I do deserve to be sitting here talking to people, maybe I am a little more human than living on the streets."
"The Catholic Church has taken a position of zero tolerance of any cleric who would sexually abuse a child" Cupich was quoted as saying by the bishops conference at the time
