IP#23 Nancy Collins – The Archbishop Wore Combat Boots on Inside the Pages

I LOVE biographies, so when this one came along I was delighted.  A memoir from a man who experienced the 20th century in all it’s ugly moments and also in it’s beauty…Archbishop Philip Hannan.  From Irish immigrant parents,  to WWII, to the Kennedy White House, to Hurricane Katrina…what a story.   Wonderful!  I talked with Nancy Collins, 2nd cousin of the Archbishop, who assisted him in writing his memoir.  Nancy is an engaging personality in her own right, and that really comes through in our conversation! She reflects on the Archbishop’s life and contribution to our country and times…praise God the greatest generation is still with us to teach and guide!
