9/11 at 10 View Comments
By Susan Hines-Brigger

In the days following 9/11, Dr. James Zogby, founder and president of the Arab American Institute in Washington, D.C., experienced anti- Muslim hatred firsthand, despite the fact that he is a Catholic of Lebanese descent.

Everyone has a 9/11 story.

Mine is that I was four months pregnant with my second child; I remember lying on the couch and watching the events unfold. I still can recall the overwhelming feeling that my life was being forever changed. For this article, I spoke with three people from different professions, locations and perspectives about their 9/11 stories. Dr. James Zogby, head of the Arab American Institute, Kelly Ann Lynch, friend of Father Mychal Judge and founder of Mychal’s Message, and Krista Tippett, host of the National Public Radio program On Being, talked with me about their recollections of 9/11, how it changed their lives, and their perspective on the events 10 years later.

Here are their stories.

Rose of Viterbo: Rose achieved sainthood in only 18 years of life. Even as a child Rose had a great desire to pray and to aid the poor. While still very young, she began a life of penance in her parents’ house. She was as generous to the poor as she was strict with herself. At the age of 10 she became a Secular Franciscan and soon began preaching in the streets about sin and the sufferings of Jesus.
<p>Viterbo, her native city, was then in revolt against the pope. When Rose took the pope’s side against the emperor, she and her family were exiled from the city. When the pope’s side won in Viterbo, Rose was allowed to return. Her attempt at age 15 to found a religious community failed, and she returned to a life of prayer and penance in her father’s home, where she died in 1251. Rose was canonized in 1457.</p> American Catholic Blog Obedience is not a joke, it is a sacrifice. The more you love God, the more you will obey. Obedience is a cross—pick up your cross and follow him. Everyone in the world has to obey in some way or another. People are forced to obey or they will lose their jobs. But we obey out of love for Jesus.
