Photopost: December 30, 2009 Memorial Mass for Servant of God, Rev. John A. Hardon SJ

I regret the delay in finalizing these photos I took on December 30th - the date of the Memorial Mass for Fr. John A. Hardon, SJ, whose cause for sainthood is being pursued

As you know, Fr. Hardon spent his final working years in an office on the grounds of Assumption Grotto in Detroit.  His library was moved one weekend - 500 boxes in all - by Msgr. Eugene Morris in November of 2007 from Assumption Grotto back to St. Louis where his cause is being studied.

Each year, a memorial Mass is celebrated for Fr. Hardon on the anniversary of his death.  This year, it was held at nearby Ss Cyril & Methodius with Episcopal Delegate for the Cause, Fr. Robert T. McDermott

As I have done most years, I photographed the Mass.  Here is a slideshow (a direct link to the gallery with individual photos is below):

You can find photos of the 2007 Fr. Hardon Memorial Mass, celebrated by Archbishop Raymond L. Burke, in this photo (scroll down and click on the other photoposts from other parts of the Mass)

Te Deum Laudamus! Home

The obedient are not held captive by Holy Mother Church; it is the disobedient who are held captive by the world!
