Last Thursday was a sad day for Catholics in NYC. They lost a dearly beloved Cardinal. Cardinal Egan.
Cardinal Egan was the Archbishop of New York from 2000 to 2009.
Not just among Catholics, Cardinal Egan was also famous among all New Yorkers. Even though I have not moved here during his days as the Archbishop, I admired him for his devout faith and work for Christ.
The mass at St. Patrick’s was broadcasted on CBS2 and Renee Fleming was the appointed singer for the funeral mass. She sang Ave Maria and lo and behold it was so beautiful I nearly cried. I recorded some parts of the songs with my iPhone so I am trying to share the video with you even though the quality might be disappointing for some.
Nevertheless, please enjoy this song. I guarantee you will love it. And hopefully you will start growing to love Renee Fleming as much as I do. 🙂
Yours Truly 🙂
