John Orme Mills OP RIP (1930-2010)

Monday, December 06, 2010
Please pray for our brother John Orme Mills OP of the Cambridge community who died this afternoon. He was born on 25th September 1930. He worked for some years as a journalist before joining the Order and made his profession on 2nd April 1971. He was ordained to the priesthood on 26th June 1976. He lived in the communities at Oxford, London, Newcastle and Cambridge as well as serving for some years as an assistant to the Master of the Order at Santa Sabina, Rome. He was editor of New Blackfriars for many years, was the 'London correspondent' of Doctrine & Life, and was involved in editing a number of books on faith and social justice. He was an active member of the Eckhart Society, and once again placed his editorial skills at its disposal, as editor of The Eckhart Review. We ask you to join us in praying for the happy repose of his soul.

Lord, you gave John your servant and priest the privilege of a holy ministry in this world.
May he rejoice for ever in the glory of your kingdom.
We ask this through our Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
