Farewell, Fr. Thomas Green, SJ


(Note: Fr. Tom Green was one of my theology professors at the Loyola School of Theology.

He was a popular Jesuit spiritual director, missionary-priest and educator.

Fr. Tom Green, S.J. wrote a number of books on prayer, discernment, and/or spirituality, such as: 1) Opening to God: A Guide to Prayer, 2) Weeds Among the Wheat, 3) When the Well Runs Dry: Prayer Beyond the Beginnings, 4) Darkness in the Marketplace: The Christian at Prayer in the World, 5) Prayer and Common Sense, 6) The Friend of the Bridegroom: Spiritual Direction and the Encounter with Christ, 7) A Vacation with the Lord, 8) and others.

May you Rest in Peace, Fr. Tom!)

From the Ateneo Blueboard, 13 March 2009:

In your prayers, please remember Fr. Thomas H. Green, S.J. who passed away this morning at San Jose Seminary.

He returned last night after spending two weeks in the hospital, where repair had been done on blocked heart arteries.

He had a good night's sleep, felt fine, but his heart gave out about mid-morning. Death was apparently very sudden.

Fr. Tom would have been 77 on Thursday, March 19.

He entered the Society of Jesus on September 7, 1949 and was ordained a priest on June 19, 1963.

Requiescat in Pace.
