Papal Duchess Genevieve Brady with Cardinal Pacelli in New York


  1. At the end of her life she attended Sunday Mass at St. Patrick's in Rome.

  2. From the parish website-
    "The Stations of the Cross are outstanding and are considered the “capolavoro” of the artist Alceo Dossena (1931). They are carved in white Carrara marble, and the high relief, freestanding figures and immense detail makes each panel a delight. They were commissioned by Genevieve Brady, and were displayed in her residence. She later married the Irish minister to the Holy See, William McCauley,. After Genevieve’s death in 1938, her husband presented the Stations to St. Patrick’s Church in her memory."
