New York archbishop: prayer and prudence on 9/11 anniversary

Catholic World News - September 10, 2010

The 9th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks on the US will be “a remarkable day of prayer and memory,” New York’s Archbishop Timothy Dolan told Vatican Radio. The archbishop will join that day in the dedication of a memorial to the terrorists’ victims.

Archbishop Dolan expressed misgivings about the plan to build a mosque near the site where the World Trade Center once stood. Although he said that freedom of religion is “a precious Catholic value, as well as an American value,” the archbishop observed that many people are still suffering from the terrorist attacks and “we don’t want to do anything to aggravate things and to reopen that wound.”
