In writing this book, I have incurred many debts of gratitude. To Professor Edward M. Gaffney, Jr., I extend my deepest appreciation for his excellent comments on the manuscript and for some careful legal advice. John Coleman, S. J., read an earlier version with great care and insight. Anne Dunn, I. H. M., gave me unfailing confidence, encouragement, and helpful comments. My friend Monsignor Royale Vadakin gave me the benefit of his usual shrewd and practical judgment. My sincere thanks to Bishop George H. Niederauer and Bishop Stephen E. Blaire for their friendship, as well as their continued interest and positive comments on my endeavors. I am deeply grateful to Cardinal Roger M. Mahony for his constant kindness. The ever-abiding care and welcome of Marita and Thomas Broderick, Enda and Therese Curry, and Brid and Bernard Sharkey have sustained me through the years. My thanks as well to Cynthia Read, Theo Calderara, and Robert Milks of Oxford University Press for shepherding this manuscript to publication. For her endless patience and invaluable editorial asistance, I am eternally grateful to Lois B. Marquez.
