In the Eyes of Others: Francis X. Morrissey Jr.
Letters of character endorsements from family, friends, clients, clergy, diplomats affirming testifying to his generous and idealistic role in their lives
Pastor Olive Gopie
“Francis has helped provide our church with doors, a new roof, windows, and a new floor and other materials that made out worship more comfortable… I think of him as a son.”
Sister Rita Morrissey
“I have known Francis since his birth, following him through his wonderful career as a student at Catholic Memorial High School, West Roxbury, and later at Harvard University… When his parents grew old and infirm, it was Francis who moved them to more suitable quarters in the Prudential Center in Boston. On a regular basis he visited them, sharing family news. Francis is a kind, generous, cultivated human being.”
“I have always been struck by the understanding that Francis has shown for the terrible period of history that my family and my I have experienced. As a symbol of Francis’s commitment to humanity and justice, I have given him my original copy of J’Accuse by Emile Zola to hang in his office as well as two sculptures by Zimmer, a Polish survivor of the death camps.”
