About Gathered Fragments

The title Gathered Fragments originated with the motto of Pittsburgh diocesan historian Msgr. Andrew A. Lambing (1842-1918) -- "Gather up the fragments [of history] that remain lest they be lost" -- which was taken from the Gospel of St. John 16:12 and adopted as the Society's journal name in December 1986.
