|I encountered this ladder truck in Mid-Manhattan on
September 12, 2001. By some providential
happenstance, I was moved to turn a corner - and
before this sight presented itself, I already knew,
somehow, that we were approaching sanctified
ground. The truck belonged to the Ladder Company for
which Fr. Mychael Judge was the beloved chaplain.
He died in the line of duty on 9-11 alongside his
firefighters. His helmet now resides in the Vatican.
...A reminder that some things transcend politics.
