There is so much more to the life and work of Father Mychal Judge than his quiet heroism on 9/11. The time has come to honor this profoundly Christian man with the sainthood he so richly deserves. On the morning of his death on September 11, 2001 Father Mychal Judge was moving quickly. Stopping only for his Fire Chaplain’s helmet and FDNY coat, he raced down to the smoking World Trade Center buildings to offer all the aid and comfort that he could. Despite the danger to his own life, his presence was mandatory, he believed. In a prayer, once he had outlined this philosophy: “Lord take me where you want me to go, let me meet who you want me to meet…” it began.
