Cardinal George doesn’t seem to appreciate Tom Roeser’s frank commentary.

Dear Mr ______,

I write to you because you are a member of the Advisory Board of Catholic Citizens of Illinois whose chairman is Mr. Thomas F. Roeser.

Mr. Roeser has taken in recent years to writing essays that are filled with factual errors and misrepresentations about events in the Archdiocese of Chicago.
