- Archbishop John R. Quinn honored in funeral Mass
By Jill Tucker - Monday Jul 10, 2017
[...] there was no eulogy at Quinn’s funeral Mass on Monday morning at the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption in San Francisco as hundreds of priests and parishioners, politicians and bishops and even a Catholic cardinal celebrated what they called a life well lived. Quinn served as the sixth archbishop of San Francisco from 1977 to 1995, a shy priest devoted to the Catholic doctrine and described as among the more liberal of church leaders. The archbishop, who died June 22 at the age of 88, was a “brilliant and a deeply spiritual man,” said Sister Rosina Conrotto, director of the Office for Consecrated Life. Quinn was a supporter of women in the church, promoting them to positions previously held only by men until the Second Vatican Council opened up such opportunities in the 1960s. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco was among those in the first pews Monday, coming to honor a “beautiful person” who confirmed her five children. In 1985, Quinn was among the first Catholic leaders to acknowledge the needs of those with AIDS, performing a rare Catholic ritual known as the 40 hours’ devotion to pray for those suffering from the disease. Two years later, after another prayer vigil for victims, he reasserted his belief that homosexual acts were a sin while stressing the need for Christian compassion. “I’m making an effort to respond to the grief, sadness, fear and helplessness involved in the growing AIDS epidemic in our midst,” he said.
