    schema:reviewBody ""George Bernard Flahiff was the son of an innkeeper in a small Ontario town. A versatile athlete and exceptional student, he studied at the University of Toronto, where his history professor, Lester Pearson, suggested a career in diplomacy. Instead, Flahiff entered the Basilian order, studied in Paris, eventually returned to Toronto where he taught at the Pontifical Institute, became superior general of the Basilians, and was named archbishop of Winnipeg. Never seeking greatness in any way but ever obedient to his calling, he rose to the highest ranks in the Church, accepting each new position with faith and humility. Ultimately a cardinal, and maker of two popes, Flahiff defied the stereotypes about bishops and cardinals, preferring buses to limousines, "George" to "Eminence," and friendship to privilege."--Jacket." ;
