The Denis Hurley Centre is a Miracle in Itself
Fr Kevin Reynolds, Pretoria – There is a significant link in your February 22 issue between a report on Cardinal Wilfrid Napier’s reference to the possible beatification/canonisation of the late Archbishop Denis Hurley OMI and Raymond Perrier’s article on the wonderful work done at the Denis Hurley Centre.
I was privileged to attend this year’s Hurley Weekend in Durban. At the AGM, chairman and director Paddy Kearney and Mr Perrier, respectively, reported on the centre’s first full year of activities.
One statistic impressed me greatly. Each week hundreds of needy people consult a doctor and receive medication at the centre. On average, this service costs the centre only R50 per person. Government health ministries could profitably follow the example of the DH Centre in this respect.
A beatification/canonisation process demands miracles being established through the intercession of the candidate. I believe the daily operation of the DH Centre is a first-class miracle in itself.
Certainly the good done is clear proof of the sanctity of the Great Man. I will certainly continue to pray in the company of “St Denis Hurley”.
