Cardinal Dolan commemorates 150th anniversary of Battle of Gettysburg
July 11, 2013
Cardinal Timothy Dolan traveled to Gettysburg, Penn., on July 6 to commemorate the anniversary of the famed Civil War battle, which took place on July 1-3, 1863. During his brief Sunday Mass homily, Cardinal Dolan paid tribute to “the memory of Catholic sisters who turned St. Francis Xavier Parish into an 1863 ‘Mash-unit’ ‘binding up the nation’s wounds’ on both sides,” as well as “Father [William] Corby absolving his men of sins as they ran towards near certain fall.”
