HEART WATCH! DAY 16: His Hermeneuticalness’ Health UPDATE

15_12_19_heart_watchHere is your HHH UPDATE for Day 10 of…


Fr. Finigan is in the hospital after a
“Minor Cardiac Episode.”

The other day Father was transferred to a spiffy new clinic whence he has a view of Parliament.

(Thanks for the homage in the tweet!)


The GREAT NEWS is that the surgery went well.


So, everyone, Father isn’t entirely out of the weeds yet.  He still needs your support in prayer and in bottles of Scotch.

  1. toasting Father’s recovery with 2 fingers of Balvenie 18, and warm wishes to everyone here, especially our host, for a fruitful and blessed 2016.

  2. Tony Phillips says:

    Good news. Look forward to Monday evening EF Mass with Fr F when he’s back in form.

  3. John Fannon says:

    Excellent news, thanks be to God. I haven’t got any Balvennie but I can celebrate with a decent Italian Red.

    Thanks too, to you Father for keeping us informed.

    First Friday today. We honor the Sacred Heart. Good day to have heart surgery.

    Half a dram of Johnnie Walker Green Label (15 YO Blended Malt) in honor of Fr Finigan’s continued recovery. Perhaps I should ship him some California Heart Medicine (wine).

    Father Z, thanks for keeping us up to date.

    A speedy recovery to Father Finigan!

  8. Maltese says:

    I’m praying for Fr. Finigan. I have heart trouble on all sides of my family. The heart pumps 2,000 gallons of blood a day–take care of it; it is a gift from God, not to be taken lightly.

  9. Suburbanbanshee says:

    Hurray for Father Finigan and his doctors! Get well soon!

    I suspect that having strong lungs from regular singing and chanting will help his recovery. But let’s keep praying for him!

    Good news about Fr. Finigan. Prayers for his speedy recovery.
