Overview

Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick presided as the archbishop of Washington during a momentous period of American Catholic history—including the terrorist attacks of September 11 and the election of Pope Benedict XVI. This collection of his weekly columns from the Catholic Standard, Washington's archdiocesan newspaper, draws readers into the mind and heart of one of America's most respected Church leaders.

During the nearly six years that Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick presided over the Church in Washington, DC, he wrote a weekly column for the Catholic Standard titled “Thinking of You.” With candor and personal warmth, McCarrick narrated aspects of his work in the diocese and beyond, reflecting on its importance for the life of the Church—locally, nationally, and globally.

Through the weeks and years collected in these pages, McCarrick's intelligent pastoral leadership is revealed, as is his constant dedication and hard work, his love for the liturgy, and his deep devotion to prayer. One also glimpses his wisdom through the events that occurred during his tenure: the beginning of the war in Iraq, the presidential election of 2004, and the death of Pope John Paul II.
