Vicar General and Cathedral Administrator Fr Martin Sirju remembers his rector at the Seminary, Fr Henry Charles.
Seven is the number of perfection, of fullness, richness. January 15 marked the seventh anniversary of the death of Fr Henry Charles—theologian, ethicist, seminary rector, journalist, attorney-at-law, mentor and friend.
In his tenure as lecturer/rector at St John Vianney Seminary, he shaped the lives of a generation of priests, several of them now bishops and vicars general. I thought it fitting to reflect again on his influence on me with respect to living a full or rich life.
