Before some families prepared their Easter meals, they had Cardinal George bless their baskets of food.The service took place Saturday morning at Our Lady Mother of the Church Polish Mission in Willow Springs.

The cardinal told the congregation that food not only keeps our bodies together, but it keeps a people together.

He went on to say that where there is food, there is life, and where there is life, there is love.

Saturday night, the cardinal was the main celebrant during an Easter vigil liturgy. During the service at Holy Name Cathedral, a number of people became full members of the Catholic Church.
