Next time you're feeling down on Holy Mother Church, think of this once-Cincinnati-based Chicago Province Jesuit who grew up on a farm in Indiana and has life by the tail, as told in the Lexington (Ky.) Herald-Leader.
He's Henry Kenney, who bills self as a "prayer coach" but has taught philosophy at Xavier U., done lots of time in Africa, and been at a Lexington spirituality center since '88. He's 88 next birthday, was found flying a kite in front of a church.
He's seeing sometimes only three or four people a day, down from five or six, having slowed down. "It burns up so much psychic energy," he told columnist Don Edwards, whose writeup is worth looking over at Kentucky.com.
