So sorry to this story framed as "good" Archbishop Cupich versus mean "combative" conservative Card. George. That really weaknes this piece.

Bishop Cupich will do well in Chicago, precisely because he shares the same qualities as Cardinal George - humility, love for the Church, and love of Christ. http://mtncatholic.com/2014/11/16/5-reasons-archbishop-cupich-is-perfect-for-chicago-or-anywhere/
