When I think of Bishop McFadden, the term actions speak louder than words comes to mind. He was truly a man of God and a man of action. He was out among the people,with the people for the people of the Diocese of Harrisburg. The good shepherd tending to his flock. I have enjoyed attending diocesan events and always came away more spiritually enriched from them.
He cared deeply about the sanctity of life from the moment of conception to natural death. He was never afraid to speak the truth especially on controversial issues. And he always ended every talk or homily with two things. You pray for me and I will pray for you. AND May Jesus Christ be praised, now and forever! Although he will be missed by many, I know that Bishop McFadden's prayers will remain ever with us as he sings with all the saints in heaven.
