Reaching Across the Wall

Fr. Vincent Nagle used to live down the road from me in Attleboro, Massachusetts. I can't remember how we were put in touch, but while he was in New England we tried several times to get together but never manged to do so. He was most solicitous, however, during Liz's illness and after her death. He soon was sent to Rome and we lost contact. We only met for the first time a few months ago at the home of a mutual friend when both Fr. Vincent and I were in San Francisco.

What a joyful and faithful man he is. If you would like to be drawn into his faith and joy, there is a YouTube video here which is a wonderful tribute to Fr. Vincent and his work in the Holy Land.
