In the mid-1980s, Cardinal John O’Connor visited the Dachau concentration camp.
Overwhelmed by the horrors that occurred there, he vowed to do all he could to protect and promote the sacredness of human life.
This led him to be a champion of life, in word and action; including the establishment of the Sisters of Life
