Scroll down and see Geraldine Ferraro's listing at this Catholic Cemetery in Middle Village , Queens, New York City, I wonder if she repented of her positions on her deathbed?  Look at some of the famous names in this cemetery , its a who's who of the Mafia history in New York, including John Gotti (who was refused a funeral mass by the Brooklyn Bishop) ............Another fact , the only Latin Mass in the Borough of Queens is hels Sundays at this same cemetery chapel, One Latin Mass for a Borough of over 2 million people.
Does Brooklyn really have a different bishop than the Archbishop of New York?

:edited to add: Never mind, I looked it up and indeed, the See of Brooklyn is another entity.
Our priest was telling us about some Church in the NYC area that was literally built by the mafia. He said they had a big picture of the Last Supper above the altar and instead of the Apostles, the mob bosses were in the picture.

Pics or it didn't happen.
What about the Croatian Church in Pittsburgh that in lieu of a Roman Centurion piercing Christ's side, a Serb soldier wearing gas mask was piercing Christ's side with a bayonet-tipped rifle?   :o

Presumably, you're speaking of this mural at St Nicholas Croatian parish. Please read the description and note that it is not as you describe it.

Many years,
