Requiescat in pace, John Meehan

From the  Northeast Catholic College website:

Today, Northeast Catholic College mourns the death of one of its founders, John D. Meehan.

Speaking of Meehan’s legacy, college president Dr. George Harne observed: “....Fundamentally Augustinian in his spiritual orientation, love motivated him in all his works for the Church, a Church to which he was unabashedly devoted.”

I only met him as a youth when my sisters attended the (then) Magdalen College. But he is a man hard to forget. In more recent years I spoke with him in conjunction with publishing his book "Two Towers" by Requiem Press. He always inspired and impressed me in speaking with him and reading his thoughts.
Dr. Harne's words are true.

May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, rest in peace.

Oremus pro invicem!
