John Sullivan SJ still inspiring…

jsullivan_mass_01A huge congregation attended the annual Fr John Sullivan SJ mass in Clongowes chapel, Naas, Co Kildare on Saturday 8 May. Chief celebrant Conor Harper SJ said the support of the people for the canonisation cause of Fr Sullivan was most heartening. “John Sullivan’s reputation was one of healing and holiness, and even though he died 80 years ago people today still feel a close connection to him and are utterly convinced that his prayers on their behalf are still being heard.” Fr Sullivan’s cross from Gardiner Street was used in a blessing ceremony for those gathered, and there was a special emphasis on the healing of the sick for whom the renowned Jesuit had such caring and compassion.
