Homily for the Mass of Christian Burial of Fr. Isaias Powers, CP
Captain of his
college football team, lumberjack, formidable softball pitcher in the famed Shelter Island League
, blue collar poet, author of dozens of books and booklets of inspiration for ordinary Catholics, charismatic youth and young adult minister, preacher of the passion of Jesus Christ to countless folks of all ages, Father Isaias Powers
was a man of many gifts and multiple dimensions.
served the Church and the Passionist community with exemplary dedication and enthusiasm in a variety of ministries during his
57 years as a vowed religious and 50 years as an ordained priest.
Perhaps it was his
quiet but consistent enthusiasm about life and his
vocation that best characterized him.
