URGENT: Prayers for Fr. Tim Finigan

May I ask your prayers for my dear friend Fr. Tim Finigan? He has the excellent blog The Hermeneutic of Continuity which for many years has provided a splendid witness to the Faith. Fr. Finigan is the best of men and a fine priest.

I saw this distressing news today….

“Of interest” to the doctors.   Yeah… that’s what we need to hear: “interesting” from a doctor.

    A Consecration and Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus! Our local TLM priest has asked this of us for the month of June. Our family will offer this to Father Finigan.

    Of course; I will indeed. Fr Finnegan has been in ‘internet regular’ for so many years. We need his good sense.

    Prayers for you, Fr. Finigan. Ask for any therapy you need, Speech, Occupational, etc., and work at it, but be patient. There is usually a lot of healing in the months after a stroke. God be with you!

    This is sad news indeed. Father Tim Finigan “once, so gloriously, of Blackfen” * (Kent, England), as Fr John Hunwicke described him recently, is a very fine orthodox Catholic priest. Father Tim has been suffering from some serious health issues these last years, although he is still only in his early sixties I believe. He celebrates the Traditional Latin Mass with great reverence and he has a great devotion to Our Blessed Lady.

    * When he was the popular parish priest of Our Lady of the Rosary at Blackfen, Catholics flocked to his Church from miles around. The congregation kept on growing and growing until suddenly, for no apparent reason, he was transferred far away to a seaside town. He never complained though and began to build up his new parish until his grave heart problems started.

    This faithful traditional Catholic priest will most certainly be in my prayers. God bless him, and all our good holy priests in these difficult times.
