Sadly one of our friars, Martin O'Sullivan (above), died over the weekend and was buried this morning. He was in his seventies and had returned to Ireland from New Zealand because of bad health. He spent twenty-six years in South Africa working with the poorest of the people and another twenty-one years in New Zealand doing similar work as well as gardening, cooking etc. I remember him from my Novitiate days (he was home in Ireland for four years) when he was part of the main community and was always there to cheer us up and get some fun going; he was always full of good-natured mischief. May the Lord have mercy on his good soul.
