Silk on +Lustiger and Jewish Identity

Mark Silk at RNS has some interesting observations on the showing of a film about Cardinal Jean-Marie Lustiger, the Jewish convert who became Archbishop of Paris, at a recent Jewish film festival. Cardinal Lustiger was not a man after my own heart, except on the way he refused to renounce his Jewish identity. Even in death: Before his body was carried into the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris for the funeral, Jewish prayers were recited over his coffin. (At 14:00 in the video below.)
