Father Gerald E. Murray, ..., 25 Nov 2015 [cached]
Father Gerald E. Murray, pastor of Holy Family, served as principal celebrant at the regularly scheduled 1:10 p.m. liturgy.
Among others, Father Murray quoted the messages and statements of Pope Francis and Cardinal Andre Vingt-Trois of Paris about the attacks, and Italian Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Vatican Secretary of State, citing the just war theory, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church's teaching on just war.
"In my words," said Father Murray, who served as a reserve U.S. Navy chaplain for more than a decade, "it's a duty of charity to protect the innocent."
The Tuesday afternoon Mass at Holy Family, located at 315 E. 47th St., drew a congregation of approximately 150, according to Father Murray. One attendee solemnly carried in a French flag where it remained respectfully draped in her pew throughout the Mass.
Father Murray thanked all the English-speaking friends and parishioners who attended the Mass and asked them to "join in prayer for the people of France."
He encouraged attendees to go to the website of the Consulate General of France in New York where a book of condolence is available to sign online.
Fr. Gerald Murray of ..., 5 Sept 2011 [cached]
Fr. Gerald Murray of St. Vincent De Paul Church remembers going to the roof of his rectory in Chelsea when he saw the second plane hit the World Trade Center.
“It was quite dramatic,†he recalled, momentarily stunned by what he saw that morning 10 years ago.
Having served as a Navy Reserve chaplain, Fr. Murray explained that he was taught that the “chaplain doesn't go to the battle line, he goes where they bring the wounded â€" the aid station.â€
“Immediately I saw the priest at St. Vincent's and I said 'could you use some help?' and he said 'yes' so I stayed at St. Vincent's the whole morning and gave absolution to people who were being wheeled in.â€
He was later joined by former archbishop of New York Cardinal Edward Egan and a diocesan priest who was the chaplain of the Port Authority police who was covered in soot from being downtown.
Fr. Murray said he remembers the sudden screams that went up from those around him at the hospital as they helplessly looked on from a distance when the Twin Towers began collapsing.
Later in the day, “I went back to my parish to say Mass, and that was one of the most dramatic feelings,†he said. “Saying Mass knowing that we'd been hit by this evil.â€
In the following months, Fr. Murray spent substantial amounts of time at Ground Zero.
“The city really snapped into action,†Fr. Murray said, noting that then-mayor Rudy Guliani came by that morning to St. Vincent's Hospital.
“My parish is on 23rd street,†Fr. Murray noted, “which is a main crosstown route for any transport but it became the route for any ambulances that recovered remains.â€
