An Amazing Priest!

Can't figure out how to insert the image (or I'm too lazy) but it's a great picture, too!

At Markoe's funeral Mass, Father Henri Renard, the homilist (and close friend), called him a fearless character who fought for the "the poor and oppressed." John Markoe is one of the unsung heroes of the Civil Rights movement, which is how he wanted it. Unassuming and modest, during his fifty years working with the African-American community, he never sought attention for himself. Like St. Ignatius Loyola, another ex-soldier turned priest, he embodied the Jesuit ideal of "men for others." [/quote]

Wow. Thanks be to God that we have such men of faith :)
