Cardinal Dolan: Steven McDonald was a role model for forgiveness in the face of tragedy


Cardinal Timothy Dolan on NYPD Detective Steven McDonald:

Steven was also a marvelous example of the dignity of all human life…

It was always an inspiration to me to see Steven on Fifth Ave. during the Saint Patrick’s Day Parade, in his full NYPD uniform.

I was especially grateful that the Police Department recognized that being a good cop meant more than catching crooks and stopping speeders, and that Steven — and now his son, Conor — represented the most noble aspects of what being a police officer is all about: a heart and soul, an agent of peace and reconciliation.
