Heart attack time

father tim finigan

An old friend, Father Finigan, of The Hermeneutic of Continuity fame, has had a “cardiac episode” as they call it now across the pond. Do visit his post on this with that link and leave a comment wishing him a quick recovery. Tell him the American Father George sent you. ;¬)

I learned a great deal about availability and solidarity with the underdog from Father Tim when I saw him at work with the disenfranchised at the time at the Sanctuaries of Our Lady of Lourdes in France, where I was a chaplain for a number of years. I was always happy to see him, along with the famous Mulier Fortis, and the rest of the parish on pilgrimage. Those were the days!

But now, if you would, say a Hail Mary for him. Hail Mary…

    Prayers said, and Father is added to my prayer list. Having gone thru this myself in 2010, I can empathize! All I can say is; follow medical advice and take it slow. For me, the “episode” was God’s way of getting me to apply the brakes…Sometimes He knocks us upside the head like this if He wants to get our attention IMO

  2. Hi, Father. Thanks for your kind post. I’m confined to a hospital ward for 5 days for observation but I am not climbing the walls yet. Just to say to your readers that I don’t have comments on my blog nowadays but people can always chip in on Twitter where I am @FatherTF

    Hope all is well with you

    God bless you, dearest Father! Health and strength and the peace of the Prince of the most profound peace be with you always. I figured that the no comments thing was about my browser’s incapacity. Get well soon.
