Late bishop a 'humble priest' whose spirituality touched thousands

 | 

The "humility, sense of humor and, above all, spirituality" of retired Auxiliary Bishop James J. Daly of Rockville Centre, who died Oct. 14, "touched thousands and thousands of the faithful in a very deep and personal way," said the head of the diocese.

Bishop William Murphy said the late auxiliary bishop, who was 92 years old, was "truly a trailblazer and visionary during the early formative years of this diocese."

A funeral Mass was celebrated for Daly on Friday at the Cathedral of St. Agnes, followed by burial at St. Boniface Cemetery in Elmont, N.Y.
