Thomas Aquinas McGovern

By

Thomas Aquinas McGovern was ordained a Jesuit priest in 1938, when he was thirty years old. A graduate of the Université Laval in Quebec, he taught at Canisius College in Buffalo, N.Y., and later at Thomas Aquinas College in California, where he served on the faculty from early 1972 until his death on February 19, 1985. His sermons for the Feasts and Seasons of the year were recently published by Thomas Aquinas College as Selected Sermons of Thomas Aquinas McGovern, S.J. Edited by Suzie Andres, they feature a foreword by the late Ronald P. McArthur, who said of them, “I think his are the best sermons you can read now…I can’t believe that Chrysostom and the Fathers of the Church have written better.”
