I remember Bro. James often and am grateful for the time I spent living and ministering in Boston as a brother in the Little Brothers of St. Francis. His perseverance through difficulty and trial and his dedication to his vocation are an inspiration. I continue to pray for the repose of his soul and remember him when I offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. May perpetual light shine upon him!

**Yesterday, 06/29/2015 on the two-year anniversary of my mother's passing, a dear friend joined my husband and me for an anniversary dinner, having handed me, while we waited for the P&B bus from South Station to arrive in Barnstable, a printout of a picture (scroll down to mid-webpage) of Br. James and Cardinal Sean from Cardinal Sean's 2009 blog--http://www.cardinalseansblog.org/2009/09/11/celebrating-the-opening-of-south-boston-catholic-academy/

It is with great sadness I learned of Br. James passing. I will pray and be in spirit at his funeral mass tomorrow. Br. James may you be experiencing the love and peace of Jesus!
