  • Has his cause been investigated for canonization?

  • I would say that the hat alone would make him worthy of canonization ...

    Well, there shouldn't be much trouble finding miracles to
    approve, but the problem is with these cases, if the priest's
    life wasn't a kind of testimony to liberalism, it's going to be
    hard to get much interest or action out of Rome.  

    But if enough people were to voice their devotion, and if it
    can be shown that there has been an enduring following (they
    used to say "cult" but that word has a new meaning today),
    then it's possible something might move forward.  They did
    not have much choice with Padre Pio, because of his worldwide
    interest.  The Vatican would have had more problems by
    NOT canonizing him than they would if they did.

    Come to think of it, how many of the hundreds of saints
    that JPII canonized had a history of miracles like Fr. Mac
    does?  So why didn't he make that wave of action?  There
    must be a reason.

  • As the media is completely controlled by the Jewish freemasons, the life-stories of holy priests like Fr. Mac have been swept under the rug, in hopes the Faithful will forget about them.  These evil-doers are highly successful, but will not triumph in the end.  Our Lady will certainly see to it!

    The beauty of this forum is that those who know/knew these saintly persons can share with us.  Although Fr. Mac died forty years ago, many people out there knew him and could testify to the impact he made in their lives spiritually.  The majority kept the Faith because of his instruction and example.  Knowledge gives all the chance to emulate the exceptional virtues shown to us by Fr. Mac and others.

    Fr. Mac is called by those who knew him "the Padre Pio of the West," and for good reason.  One day his story will be as well known as is the life of Padre Pio.  

    The impact he has made in the lives of my family is substantial, spiritually.  Just another definition of "resistance."  My vote is we shouldn't give them a choice on this Saint either.

    Who is still alive that knew Father Mac?  He died over 100 years ago.

  • The Fr. Mac I'm referring to is Fr. Leo Franklin McNamara of St. Adrian's Church in Chicago, IL.  He died on October 26, 1973, almost 40 years ago.

  • I failed to read of the Canadian Fr. Mac before my post.  Glad to hear of this holy priest with the same nickname.  Many good, holy and unrecognized men came from Ireland.  Thanks for linking the information.

    The Fr. Mac mentioned here is one from Toronto, Canada. It's a very edifying story.
    Matthew 5:37

    But let your speech be yea, yea: no, no: and that which is over and above these, is of evil.

    My Avatar is Fr. Hector Bolduc. He was a faithful parish priest in De Pere, WI,

    It looks like there might be a rivalry in the making going on here:  
    There are two claimants to the title of "FATHER MAC."

  • As today is the 118th anniversary of Father McSpiritt's death, did anyone visit his grave?

  • My wife, daughter and I did along with a family friend. Nothing was planned by the local parish, and there was no evidence of other visitors.

    Perhaps readers can make a spiritual visit.

    The posted article on Father's life was in a book written by an Orangeman, but as the author stated, this gives an unbiased account. Given the numerous miracles described, I wonder how many more a Catholic might have described.

    Interesting also that the local Bishop asked him to stop the miracles so as not to offend Protestants, and when Father continued, he was re-assigned to a more remote parish - sound familiar?

    Father had a reputation for sticking to spiritual matters and avoiding much of earthly pleasures. Human respect was not a failing of his.

    He did cure Protestants, but sometimes did assign a penance of joining the Church.

    If he were alive today, I think the Resistance would have another priest.

  • They can name a school after him and designate his church an heritage site but to sprinkle holy water on his grave on his anniversary is too much.

    I'm so pleased Bro. Joseph and family honoured this lovely priest today.
    I hope Father McSpiritt will intercede for your needs.

    Just think: and Orangeman would have omitted them ALL if he
    thought he could get away with it!  The fact he included some
    is proof that he was afraid those were the BARE MINIMUM of
    what he could have mentioned.  

    I can't help but wonder how long it's been since they had to
    refill the grave because of people taking 3rd class relics by
    samples of the dirt that covers him?  And every time they add
    more, it's like holy water, so long as there is at least that much
    dirt already there, the extra dirt you add becomes equally blessed.
    Interesting, no?  I hope you took home a jar or two for yourself!!

    Stop the miracles so as not to offend Protestants!  

    I just read a bunch of comments on a dictionary website where
    atheists are saying that when someone says "God bless you!" to
    them, they are OFFENDED!  And a California teacher is telling her
    class that no one is allowed to say "God bless you" in her classroom.
    Other comments actually applaud that nonsense.

    So this idiocy started 100 years ago in Canada -- probably before
    that, and in England or Germany.  Speaking of Germany, the
    linked website above is for "gesundheit" and what it means.  
    Apparently atheists prefer it because all it means is "health to you"
    and implies NOTHING religious or about God or blessing.  All those
    wild comments could be a whole thread here on CI.  But our
    members would never say those things.  Sometimes it's good just
    to keep track of the heresies and how to respond to them.  
    Heretics hate it when you make light of their false gods, or of their
    hatred of anything to do with God.

    I said England or Germany but it probably should be France, since
    this is French Canada, correct?  

    I was thinking Ireland because Fr. McSpiritt was Irish.

    The linked website above mentions that the French response for
    when someone sneezes is "a tes, souhait," which likewise has no
    religious connotation.
