Cardinal John P. Foley, 76, Vatican Spokesman, Dies

Tue, Dec 13, 2011
Philadelphia. At 14 he became an announcer for a Sunday morning radio show. He said he heard “God’s little whisper” summoning him to the priesthood as a student at Saint Joseph’s Preparatory School in Philadelphia. In 1957 he graduated summa cum laude from Saint Joseph’s College, now University, then entered St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Wynnewood, Pa. He was ordained in 1962 and assigned to a suburban parish. Cardinal Foley was a protégé of Cardinal John Krol of Philadelphia, who urged him to go to Columbia Journalism School. There, as the oldest student in his class, he was elected class president, was voted most likely to succeed and earned a master’s degree in 1966. Sent to Rome by Cardinal Krol for advanced studies, Father Foley wrote a dissertation titled “Natural Law, Natural Right and the Warren Court” and earned a doctorate from the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas. In 1979, he was media liaison for Pope John Paul II’s first trip to the United States. He reported on Vatican affairs for the Philadelphia archdiocese newspaper, which, on his return, he edited until 1984. He was named an archbishop and appointed Vatican spokesman that same year. At first he turned down the appointment, saying he had to care for his ailing widowed mother. Cardinal Krol told him to bring her with him to Rome, a move that did not make her happy. An outspoken woman, she said to her son after meeting John Paul, “Being pope can really go to some people’s heads.” Not that Cardinal Foley escaped her critical eye, he said. Commenting on his appreciation of Italian cuisine, she told him, “John, there are 20 pounds of you that have not been ordained.” She died in 1997. (His father died in 1963, Cardinal Krol in 1996.) Cardinal Foley returned to the Philadelphia area after retiring this year. He left no immediate survivors. Cardinal Foley liked to tell a story to illustrate how he balanced his clerical and journalistic identities. During a trip to Egypt in 1975, Cardinal Krol asked him whether he should take a camel ride. A cautious Father Foley said no, but Cardinal Krol ignored the advice. As his eminence, wearing an Arab head scarf, struggled not to fall off the camel, Father Foley snapped a picture. When the photo appeared in newspapers, Cardinal Krol asked him why he had taken the photo after telling him not to ride the beast. “As your priest, I gave you my best advice,” he replied. “As a journalist, I took your picture.” ...
