At around 9.30am yesterday, Fr. John Dominic Logan, OP, 81, died of a massive heart attack while vesting for Mass.

He was priest-in-residence at St. Joseph's in Ponchatoula, LA.

I worked with J.D. in campus ministry at the University of Dallas.  

After we'd concelebrated my first Mass at U.D., we processed to the sacristy and I said, "Well, that went well."  J.D. harrumphed and said, "Your liturgical gestures look like you're swatting at flies."

That's our J.D.

  1. Is this the really tall Fr. J.D. who always wore sneakers? We'll be praying for him.

  2. Father, sorry for your troubles, as we say in Ireland. But a beautiful death for a priest to die preparing to celebrate Holy Mass. May he rest in peace. My prayers for all in the Dominican family who have lost one of their brothers.

    Just met him last year at the Lufkin monastery. May he rest in the joy of the Lord....although with those big sneakers!
