A couple of friends from seminary days have written some more about the late Father Joseph F. Reilly. No doubt about it, he is missed by many. Two other recollections of him were written by priest friends of his. I think that theirs are much better than mine, so I would like to share them with you.
From Fr. J.C. Garrett, priest of the Diocese of Trenton, NJ
From Fr. Christopher Zelonis, priest of the Diocese of Allentown, PA
While the death of Father Reilly was shocking and sad, I can honestly say that I am grateful to have known him. I pray that I may one day see him again and together with him and all the blessed, be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light.
