A week from today, Fr. John Sullivan S.J. (1861-1933) will be beatified. I learned this through sheer chance today. I haven't heard anyone talking about it.
Watch a short film about his inspirational life here.
I have several times prayed at his coffin in Gardiner Street.
Ireland hasn't got very many modern-day saints, or beati. Blessed Columba Marmion, a spiritual writer and Benedictine monk, is one of our few modern beati, but nobody ever talks about him. The more famous holy men and women, such as Venerable Edel Quinn, Venerable Matt Talbot, and Servant of God Frank Duff, are still at the early stages of sainthood. Fr. John Sullivan is somewhere between them. I only heard about him a few years ago, but he seems pretty well known. He is indeed a very attractive saint.
