Catholics blast Chirlane McCray over city statue snub

The faithful raised holy hell this week after The Post reported the first lady’s “She Built NYC” program for statues honoring exceptional women rejected the public’s choice of iconic sister Frances Xavier Cabrini.

Cabrini, the first American saint, devoted her life to helping the needy in the late 1800s but got passed over despite receiving 219 votes, more than any other nominee.

Councilman Justin Brannan fired off an angry letter to McCray’s office on Monday this week, saying, “Mother Frances Xavier Cabrini, who received more nominations from New Yorkers than any other woman during the process, has been completely ignored.”

“My simple question is this: why open this for a public vote and then ignore the results?” the councilman asked.
