"Sometime ago I was in conversation with Cardinal John O'Connor of New York. We were describing the widespread confusion in so many
Catholic circles in our day, and the pressures on the Church to conform to the secularized society especially in the Western world. I
suggested to the Cardinal that what the Church needs is bishops like St. John Fisher who was martyred by Henry VIII because, as bishop of
Rochester in England, he refused to follow Henry in rejecting the papal primacy. Cardinal O'Connor agreed, but he added, 'Sometimes I envy
St. John Fisher. He refused to obey the king, was put in prison, beheaded, and became a martyr. As archbishop of New York, I am being
martyred every day by the media for standing firm on the moral teachings of the Catholic Church and my loyalty to the Holy Father.'"
