Newly Appointed Cardinal Dolan Addresses National Guard
Cardinal Timothy Dolan, recently appointed to Cardinal, had the opportunity to address the Stewart Air National Guard in Newburgh, New York, for their 7th Annual Prayer Breakfast.
Cardinal Dolan was welcomed by the wing commander BrigGen Verle Johnston and Chaplain (LtCol) Joseph LaMorte, the senior chaplain:
The cardinal’s message came from the inspirational story behind his bishop’s motto: “Lord, to whom shall we go?”
In times of trouble and trial; we turn to our faith, or whatever we believe deeply, for reassurance, comfort, and direction, Dolan said. His message emphasized reaffirming the importance of emotional and spiritual well being and faith in our lives.
Military bases throughout the world have continued the tradition of hosting faith-affirming prayer breakfasts or luncheons as a means of spiritual support for servicemembers.
