After 9/11, the churches were crowded with people, especially the Cathedral. Worshipers were lighting candles, praying in the Lady Chapel, or attending Mass. I never saw so much devotion and faith at the Cathedral.
One memory I will always cherish was the Mass that Cardinal Egan celebrated. It was at that Mass that he gave us that great phrase...calling Ground Zero, "Ground Hero." Everyone applauded at that very true statement. And after Mass, the recessional hymn was "The Battle Hymn of the Republic." After we sang that hymn, we felt so strong...nothing was going to destroy our spirits and our faith.
