My dear friend and great example,
I am writing to say thank you so much for the invitation to be with you and our other friends at the University last month. It was a wonderful program, and I was pleased to have the chance to be one of the participants. I am also truly delighted with the copy of your extraordinary book. I have already begun reading it, and I find that it is hard to stop — it is fascinating and a most important document for all those who want to find peace in the mercy and compassion of God. Thank you for doing it. You and your team will be blessed by many, many people as more and more have a chance to learn of the extraordinary studies that you have made at a time of great internal crisis for the world and of great courage for those who are giving leadership for peace and happiness.
I look forward to seeing you again soon, and I thank you for the extraordinary gift from an extraordinary team. I know you will be more things like this, because it is clear to me that the world needs studies of this kind and leadership like your own.
With every good wish and my best regards to your team and your family, I am
Your devoted friend,
Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick
