About me

.My name is Fr Eamonn F Whelan, at least that is one of the more respectable names I am sometimes called!.  

I am a priest in good standing…..so far!    And that is how I wish to die.

I have another blog now seldom updated at 

http://newefpastoremeritus2.blogspot.co.uk/

where one may read a great number of my previous posts which are not listed on   on side bar here and also contains , with snippets  from posts on all the many others on blogspot. That is something I do not know how to produce on this WordPress blog sidebar.

My NEW email is efw1deal@aol.comi.e FIGURE ONE after efw. I am a priest of Southwark Archdiocese which has no responsibility for what I publish. I retired as a parish priest at 70 years of age in 2008 due to multiple health problems. Hopefully I still have my MENTAL faculties! I am concerned with matters of justice both in Church and Society. I also aim to bring to the fore matters of Catholic interest and morality especially those which could be easily overlooked elsewhere. I am also passionately concerned with publishing any Papal teaching in its entirety when available. This blog may irritate some, annoy some and please some. I hope all will find it interesting! At all times I hope to be faithful and obedient to the Catholic Church. I have sixteen nieces and nephews one of whom, Grainne, died shortly after birth. I have, so far 23 grandnieces and grandnephews. I hope for many more

I am a priest of Southwark Archdiocese which has no responsibility for what I publish. I retired as a parish priest at age of 70  in 2008 after three cerebrovascular accidents  and developing  COPD, ( stemming from SURGICAL emphysema!) and  unstable Angina.   Apart from that I am healthy!   ( Leave me with my illusions please. )

Hopefully I still have at least some of my mental faculties! Especially as I am on call for Sunday  (and sometimes weekday) Mass in various parishes!  I regularly supply in one parish on Saturday evenings or Sunday morning, though I can no longer celebrate two Masses “back to back” i.e one immediately after another on a Sunday morning.

In Oct. 2014 I was rushed to hospital with suspected hearts attack.  .. Intense exmination with angiogram and CT scan revealed blocked arteries .90%,  30%  and 20% plus cancerous lesions in right lung!!!  I decided against deep radium for lung as it would not improve my COPD. I had surgery for the arteries         In Dec 2014  I was again rushed to hospital where I remained for 13 days. For  eleven of  those   days I was knocking on the gates  of heaven but  no one opened them!    Consultants were surprised that  I recovered
