Former archbishop Hannan who gave JFK eulogy dies‎
[link to abcnews.go.com]

Phillip Matthew Hannan, the former New Orleans archbishop who sought to console a grieving nation with his eulogy for John F. Kennedy and who served more than three decades as the popular leader of his Roman Catholic archdiocese, has died on the 47th anniversary of his ordination.

The 98-year-old clergyman, who was in declining health for years, died peacefully before dawn Thursday. Hannan's body will lie in state at New Orleans Notre Dame seminary for three days starting Monday followed by a funeral mass Thursday afternoon at St. Louis Cathedral here.

Hannan was assigned to New Orleans in 1965 from Washington, where he had been an auxiliary bishop since 1956. When he went to inspect his future haunts at the ancient St. Louis Cathedral in the riotous French Quarter teeming with tourists, street musicians, mimes and tarot card readers he showed his unique humor as a churchman.

"This is the only city where an archbishop can walk into his cathedral while a band outside in Jackson Square is playing 'When the Saints Go Marching In,'" he famously quipped.

Hannan was the 11th archbishop in New Orleans history and its most active, combining conservative politics with generous service to the poor. When he turned 75 and had to retire as archbishop, he became president of WLAE-TV, the public television station he founded.

He was one of the last surviving bishops who attended the Second Vatican Council. He also criticize Obama last year over abortion funding at the age of 97.

When Kennedy was assassinated on Nov. 22, 1963, the president's widow Jacqueline asked Hannan to deliver the eulogy because of his close personal relationship with the president, which dated to the 1940s.

They said he was drunk when he gave that eulogy.
