Jesus and Father John Lenihan

Beauty of My Sunset

Beauty of My Sunset

The founding pastor of St. Patrick’s
A soul, a blessing, a man, a friend
What I loved about Johnny was
his unholy holiness
raw love that could be abrasive
He mentored me here and there
Let me vent…
…and sometimes vented along with me!

John assured me of my goodness,
especially when I struggled with how others
believed in my lack of goodness.

Father John is to my left and behind me.

Father John is to my left and behind me.

Johnny was fun to be around
A true brother of no nonsense

A soul, a blessing, a man, a friend
Calling me to the same…
A soul, a blessing, a man, a friend
O my!!!

Father John Lenihan died this week. He is a priest of the Diocese of St. Augustine. He was the first pastor of St. Patrick’s in Jacksonville. I was the 7th pastor.

Thanks for following this blog. Breathe in... Breathe out... Peace!
