Overview

Excerpt from Cardinal Gibbons: Churchman and Citizen

The following pages are presented to the lovers and friends of His Eminence, James Cardinal Gibbons, in the persuasion that they will be pleased to have even this account of his long career of loving service to God and souls, of his religious and civic virtues, his gentle, fatherly ways, so familiar to them, his calmness under trials, his humility in exaltation, - in a word, of his splendid manhood, overshadowed by the nobler stature of his sublime priesthood and his crowning glory as a "Prince of the Church" They will read with affection the pathetic details of his Last Days, sketched by one who watched every phase with love and sorrow.

We realize that a complete and satisfactory Life of Cardinal Gibbons would require a longer perspective of time and the combined pens of experts; for no man touched more intimately and with greater fruitfulness than did the Archbishop of Baltimore, so many matters of importance, ecclesiastical and civil, national and even world-wide in their significance, during his long, wise and judicious rule of half a century.

Yet it is the earnest hope of the Authors that what is herein contained may prove a delight and stimulus to the reader and a help to those who, at some future time, may undertake a larger and more comprehensive study of His Eminence, James Cardinal Gibbons, Churchman and Citizen.

Feast of the Assumption, 1921.
