Telegraph obit for Professor John Henry

Thanks to Bernadette for pointing me to the Daily Telegraph Obituary for Professor John Henry which was published a couple of days ago. As well as speaking of his distinguished professional career, the article mentions his membership of Opus Dei and his devotion to St Josemaria Escriva. Professor Henry suffered kidney failure and St Josemaria himself prayed that a suitable idney would be found for transplant. Shortly after his death, a perfect match was found. The article speaks of Professor Henry's spiritual life:
Throughout his busy life he went to Mass every day; and every day he made time for two periods of prayer or meditation, one in the morning and the other in the afternoon or evening. It was from this deep spirituality that he derived his drive and dedication to his work, as well as his infectious cheerfulness.
May the good Lord reward the Professor for his witness to the faith in his professional life. Say a prayer for him today that the Lord may forgive "any sins he committed through human frailty" and bring him swiftly into the company of his beloved "Father" St Josemaria, Our Lady and all the angels and saints.
