Friends, Father Patrick Peyton, C.S.C., was in many ways a mystic who lived with one foot in heaven and one on earth. On this, the 29th anniversary of his death, I would like to share two simple glimpses into his charism: One is from an incident in 1953 and the second is a testimony from his mentor, Father Cornelius Hagerty, C.S.C., in 1963.
Venerable Patrick Peyton, Pray for us!
