FIFTH SUNDAY OF LENT                                                                March 22, 2015

  

ONE OF OUR OWN IS A MARTYR

 

50 years ago Fr. Arthur MacKinnon of nearby Low Point, N.S., died in Dominican Republic. 

He was killed after speaking out for the poor of that country. I knew Fr. Arthur when I was his family's pastor at  St. Alphonsus Church,

  

   Remembering his parents and siblings, I am not surprised he had the courage to die as a Scarboro Foreign Mission Society priest serving Christ's poor in  a far away country.  . .

   We rejoice at the memory of Fr. Arthur, one of our own, a hero among the followers of Christ
