As ailing 80-year-old New York Archbishop John Cardinal O'Connor continues to battle the effects of cancer radiation treatment, he can still "see" the trees: and the forest. O'Connor continued his unprecedented record of improving Christian-Jewish relations with his support of a project to plant a forest in Israel honoring Pope John Paul II. The project to plant 25,000 trees in Nazareth is being sponsored by the Center for Christian-Jewish Understanding of Sacred Heart University in Connecticut, along with the Jewish National Fund.
