John Joseph O'Connor is consecrated bishop in the Catholic Church. Later cardinal-archbishop of New York, John O'Connor will be among the most influential Catholic leaders in America during the late 20th century.

Cardinal O'Connor is a strong voice for conservative Catholicism on many issues, arguing against both abortion and homosexuality.

At the same time, Cardinal O'Connor exerts similar effort on behalf of the traditional Catholic social policies, for example advocating greater rights for the poor and for labor unions. This becomes increasingly rare among the conservate hierarchy of the Catholic Church in the early 21st century.
