Phil O’Connor, 1941-2013


Finally, some sad news this week in our Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly family. Phil O’Connor, our supervising producer and dear friend, died of cancer. He was a superb news producer, a genial colleague, and an extraordinarily good man. He loved great stories, French wine, staying fit, the Chicago Cubs, Jesuit retreats, and his wife and family, to whom we send our deepest sympathy.

    Deepest sympathy to his friends and family.

    “When it (the soul) leaveth the body … it will evince such ascendancy, and reveal such influence as no force on earth can equal. Every pure, every refined and sanctified soul will be endowed with tremendous power, and shall rejoice with exceeding gladness.” – Baha’i Writings
