Today (2 Jan 2018) is the funeral of Bishop Curlin. Rare was the occasion that I got a chance to speak with him. I was always very happy with those conversations as they gave me quite a bit of insight into who he was. We discussed things from back in the day, common friends from his previous postings, missionary activities, and of course the Missionaries of Charity. The one who brought us together was Mother Teresa of Calcutta and the M.C. God speed to you, Bishop Curlin.
