Father John Edwards, S.J.—The Passing of a Great Man.



I just wanted to express my sorrow at the passing of a great man, Father John Edwards, S.J.

Father John was a great friend of my Parish Priest who could probably do with a prayer or two today. 

Father John would always help out in our Parish at busy times and was regular in the confessional. He was dearly loved by everyone in Leigh-on-Sea and well known for being a wonderful confessor. 
Requiem æternam dona eis, Domine,
et lux perpetua luceat eis.
Te decet hymnus Deus, in Sion,
et tibi reddetur votum in Ierusalem.
Exaudi orationem meam;
ad te omnis caro veniet.
Requiem æternam dona eis, Domine,
et lux perpetua luceat eis.

  1. I remember his kindness in Confession to me, a new Catholic, and his recollections at Tisbury. God rest his soul.
