Fr Dan Kennedy, RIP

Tragically, a Boston priest who was ordained last May died suddenly of a heart attack. He was only 34 years old. I didn't know him personally, but I knew him because I sometimes went to Mass at a parish where he helped while a deacon. He was very enthusiastic about being a priest and loved his vocation. He will be greatly missed here!

Here he is on his ordination day with Cardinal O'Malley.

I read about this on Cardinal O'Malley's blog. How sad! My prayers are with everyone touched by this tragedy. I pray that faith, family, and memories may be sources of comfort.

Hi again Sr. Lorraine,
I knew I had already visited your blog before because it has been on the sidebar of my main blog, Mostly Prayers.

A joyful Lent to you,
