Words matter.

“Words can spew hatred and lies, divide society, slander and hurt. But words can console in times of trial and difficulty and challenge people to love one another. Words can offer forgiveness. Words can also make us realize we have a common heritage as God’s people.”

With those words, Cardinal Blasé Cupich, archbishop of Chicago, opened a recent program Nov. 18 with Fritzie Fritzshall, Holocaust survivor and president of the Illinois Holocaust Museum, at Wilmette’s Loyola Academy.
