Quite a Guy! Fr. Edwin Leahy, OSB

Recommended Posts


Here's a link to a video about Fr. Edwin Leahy, Headmaster of St. Benedict's Prep in Newark, New Jersey. He graduated from St. Benedict's himself, then joined the monastery, and he's been headmaster for 45+ years. It's a very unusual school - mostly African-American and Latino students, many of them non-Catholic. But school life is based on the Rule of St. Benedict.

The video is rather long - 8+ minutes. But it's worth the time. He's got that very... shall we say "direct"?... New Jersey style of communication, yet he's completely Benedictine, and he's also funny sometimes. He's over 70 years old, but he comes off as around 50.
