This being the Feast of All Saints of Ireland I had wished to write something about my good friend and fellow student Alfie Lambe whose cause for beatification and canonization is in process.

However, after making three attempts, this bloody Livejournal has defeated my efforts. So I am left to reflect on him and on his great work for the Legion of Mary in South America alone.



It must be an odd experience to be familiar with a potential saint.
Yes, Alfie had a personality which attracted souls to the service and love of God, an infectious enthusiasm, and a facility for learning languages that helped in his ministry. He suffered from TB and died aged only 27. RIP.
I did wonder about such an early death. A horrible condition and still a huge killer in some places.
