“Like the nuns at Gettysburg, may we finally learn to unleash the most powerful weapon of all: unconditional love.” 

A little more than 150 years ago — July 1-3, 1863 — the bloodiest battle of the American Civil War was fought at Gettysburg, Pa. In that three-day period, the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia and the opposing Union Army of the Potomac suffered more than an estimated 43,000 combined casualties.

About 10 miles south of Gettysburg is the Emmitsburg (Md.) Province of the Daughters of Charity, where foundress Elizabeth Ann Seton, America’s first native-born canonized saint, is buried.

With the title “Nuns unleashed Battle of Gettysburg’s most powerful weapon”  writer Tony Magliano unfolds the reason behind his thinking.

The article concludes… “Like the nuns at Gettysburg, may we finally learn to unleash the most powerful weapon of all: unconditional love.”
