Throwback Reflection – 1984

In 1984, Fr. Aidan Rooney, CM, was a newly ordained Vincentian priest in the Eastern Province when he penned this reflection for the Miraculous Medal Magazine (now called The Message Magazine). His words are as true today as they were almost four-decades ago. Currently, Fr. Rooney serves as the Vice President for Mission for Integration at Niagara University, a Vincentian institution, in Niagara Falls, NY. To learn more about Fr. Rooney’s journey as a Vincentian, check out a 2019 profile about him HERE.
