I Have Always Desired to Die on Sunday

I see from the number of physicians that you think my condition dangerous, but I thank God, if it is His will, that I am ready to go. […] It is the Lord’s Day; my wish is fulfilled. […] I have always desired to die on Sunday.

— Words of General Thomas Jonathan Jackson on his deathbed (9 – 10 May 1863).

As Senior Warden of the Cathedral of the Incarnation (Orlando, FL), he organised the process by which the parish accepted the Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum coetibus, petitioning to join the Catholic Church.
