A priest legend goes to his reward

Thanks to Fr Tim Finigan for posting on the death of Fr Hugh Thwaites SJ.

I never met Fr Thwaites but our paths crossed closely several times. From all accounts he was a giant of a priest in the spiritual sense and one who never ceased to fearlessly offer up the sacrifice of the Latin Mass and to spread the word of Christ's teachings wherever he found himself.

This is from a talk he gave on the demonic.....may Almighty God have mercy on his soul and may he rest in peace, Amen.


  1. I had the privilege of serving his Mass on many occasions. A great man, with a beautiful soul, God rest him.

  2. A fine man, indeed. And a loss we can ill afford.

  3. Richard,
    An exemplary priest who had great devotion to The Holy Rosary-a great man of wisdom who would give wonderful advice too! (RIP)



  4. Anagnostis, what a memory that must be. Aged P - thank you. Michael - we need more like Fr Thwaites.
