Cartoonist says images ‘promote empathy’; they’re ‘remarkably powerful’

This cartoon by Pat Byrnes depicts a "vaccine-hesitant Thomas." A Detroit native, Byrnes has been published in The Washington Post and The New Yorker, among other places. He's the brother of Archbishop Michael J. Byrnes, who is the current archbishop of Agaña, Guam, and a former Detroit auxiliary bishop. (CNS illustration/Pat Byrnes, courtesy Detroit Catholic)
