Fr. Thomas H Green, S.J. "Rest In Peace"

FR. THOMAS H. GREEN, S. J. died on Friday morning, March 13, at San Jose Seminary. He had returned the night before from two weeks in the hospital, where repair was done on blocked heart arteries. He had a good night’s sleep and felt fine but his heart gave out about mid-morning. Death was apparently very sudden. Fr. Tom would have been 77. He entered the Society on 7 September 1949 and was ordained a priest on 19 June 1963. Requiescat in Pace.

I have read and reread Father Green's books for years. Father rest in the Father's love. Thank you for your books and spiritual guidance all these years and more to come. I have learned much from your teachings on St. Ignatius; St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Avila. Stephen Farrell OCDS. We Carmelites are betters.

I have read and reread Fr. Tom's books for years. He has shown and simplified the teachings of Sta. Ignatius of Loyola's; St. Teresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross. His spiritual directions from afar have been a great help and encouragement since 1991. Father Tom I am truly sorry to learn of your passing. Rest now in our Father's love. Though we never met each other I have considered you a friend and guide. Stephen Farrell OCDS just another begging Carmelite.
THERE IS A RIVER THAT GLADDEN'S GHE HEART!

"Weeds Among the Wheat" is a spirit filled personal "co-discerner" in my pilgrim journey. God be praised for Fr. Thomas' giving me insight that my attitide be "God Alone" (and not "God above all")
