Brother Aidan's Extracts


"Brother Jerome, a novice in the Congregation of Holy Cross, whose holy life was crowned with a blessed death on the eve of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, December 7th. He was an employee of the 'Ave Maria' office, and left to his co-laborers and the community an example of piety and devotedness which will long be remembered" AVE MARIA, 23:595, 1886

"Brother Jerome, known in the world as John D. Kelly, who had been for some time engaged in the 'Ave Maria' office, passed peacefully from earth, after a lingering illness, on December 7th; May he rest in peace!" SCHOLASTIC, Dec. 13, 1886
