Statement from Saints Owner Tom Benson on Passing of Archbishop Philip Hannan
 
Archbishop Hannan once told me that the New Orleans Saints were part of the unique culture and social fabric of our city.

The same can be and must be said of him.

His passing today, albeit sad, should make us all pause for a moment and celebrate a wonderful man and a wonderful life, one that has impacted many generations.

My friendship with the Archbishop goes back many years.

He has impacted my life and the life of my wife Gayle in many ways. We have both relied on him in the past and we will now look to him in the future for continued strength and spiritual guidance. His life was a living testament of how one's faith can steer you through tough times as well as prosperous times.
