A Catholic Priest on the War

A Catholic Priest on the War —  Rev. B. F. Lynden preached a “war sermon” to his church on Broadway, South Boston, Sunday, instructing his congregation that it was the duty of the Catholics to drop all party issues and to stand by the flag of their adopted country, and, if necessary, to forsake home and friends, and fight nobly for the stars and stripes of the United States of America.
