Jesuit and Pioneer, Venerable John Sullivan’s cause for beatification moves a step closer

On Friday 7th November 2014, Pope Francis moved Irish Jesuit, Fr John Sullivan, a step closer to beatification when he approved the decree that he lived a life of heroic virtue.

Venerable John Sullivan S.J. (1861-1933) was raised as a member of the Church of Ireland. After a course of studies at Trinity College, Dublin, he qualified as a barrister. On December 21st 1896, he was received into the Catholic Church in London at Farm Street Jesuit Church and a few years later in Ireland he entered the Society of Jesus at Tullamore on September 7th, 1900. The intensity with which he embraced the religious life became very obvious to all who knew him from his first days in the novitiate As a priest he was known for his love of the sick and was indefatigable in visiting them in hospitals and their homes. Many cures were reported after his prayerful visits.
