PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Ashley


Good Evenng All,.

Mike McEneney asks for our prayers for Ashley a 32 year old Mother of 3 little Children, 3 1/2 year old Twins and a 2 year old Daughter. 

After a long illness, Ashley was called home this past Sunday. It is a very sad time for this young Family and a time we may ask, why Lord. We pray that He helps this Family find peace in the certain knowledge that Ashley is at peace in God’s Eternal Embrace in the Kingdom of Heaven. We pray that the hurt and so deep loss the Family feels is somewhat lessened as the Lord’s love Embraces those Ashley left behind and that Ashley’s beloved and loving Family and Friends remember and cherish the time she shared her life with them. 

Ashley was in our prayers some time ago as Lauren ’05, Mike’s Granddaughter, had asked for our prayers. Lauren was Ashley’s main care giver and was at Ashley’s side when Ashley was called home to rest. Please keep the Family, Lauren and those precious Children in your prayers.

Thank you. God Bless.

COMMENT: Jablon, Ken (MC1962) sees the “religious right” as the problem



Regarding your comment in the ENDNOTE of 2/3/18—”Abortion should be a rarity; not a convenient form of birth control. I agree! However, it’s not going to happen if the religious right, particularly the Catholic Church, make it as difficult as possible to purchase and use birth control materials.

Ken Jablon ‘62

[JR: Nice that we agree. I don’t see there is much difficulty in “buying and using”. It’s (imho) cheap — despite what Democratic convention speaker Sandra Flack articulated — and easy. And the Catholic Church is not a big hurdle since it, and this Pope, seems to be abandoning any standards at all. Sadly, hopefully, abortion will be seen as “immoral” in that it threatens humanity as a species. As with other “alternatives” — what the religious right would call “perversions” — behaviors that prevent reproduction are contra-survival of humanity. The low replacement birth rate doesn’t bode well for humanity.]

Office of the President

To the Manhattan College Community,

I am writing to provide an update on the health of our President Emeritus,  Brother Thomas Scanlan, FSC.  As you know, Brother Thomas underwent open heart surgery two weeks ago.  When I wrote to the community on January 11, the plan was for him to return directly to the Manhattan College Christian Brothers Community.  Unfortunately, some complications slowed his progress and kept him in the hospital until late last week.  I am happy to report that he has been discharged and is back on track toward full recovery at De La Salle Hall in Lincroft:  810 Newman Springs Road / Lincroft, NJ 07738.

I know that Brother Thomas appreciates the community’s prayers and good wishes. 

Brennan O’Donnell
