The story behind the homily delivered at Mychal Judge’s funeral


Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 09/14/17

Here, from Story Corps, is the story behind how Father Michael Duffy came to deliver the homily at Father Mychal Judge’s funeral.

You can read the full homily here. It’s a superlative example of a funeral homily, by the way, and should be studied by anyone who has to deliver something like this.

But listen to the account below. (Please be patient. It may take a moment to load.)
