"Cardinal George immediately recognized me, smiling and saying, “We have met!”. This recognition that Cardinal George made put all of us at ease and on a fiesta mode to share. This time, we had more time to enjoy conversation. Of course, this showed not just how good his memory was but rather how he cares each person he has encountered, regardless of his or her status or position. This really reflects how God cares and knows each person on earth. Knowing that he meets so many people every day, I never thought that he would remember me."

"The foremost important factor in pastoral ministry is the kind of hospitality and approachability that Cardinal George exhibited to all of us, no matter who we are and where we are from. This hospitality and friendliness is also about getting to know each person as who he or she is. Even though he had to meet so many people in a very limited time, Cardinal George made conscious efforts to get to know each of us, beyond “Hello” and handshake."

"Cardinal George was as easily approachable as “brother Francis”, once the initial ice was broken. This ease and friendliness is due to Cardinal George’s outgoing character, reflecting the flow of the Holy Spirit, as he often initiates conversations with his “Hello” and greetings, especially, to those who seem shy or nervous in meeting him."
