Homily of Fr. Benjamin Sim for Fr. Eugene Moran
Today we are gathered here to bid Gene Moran goodbye. If I were to describe Gene in a few words, I would say that he was an achiever -a man of action. I can still picture him zooming into the driveway on his motorcycle in his dark "space suit." Fr. Gene devoted 40 years of his priestly life laboring for God, the Society of Jesus, the country, and our people, not counting his years of study and formation directed toward this service. By Fr. Benjamin Sim, S.J.
Homily of Fr. Vic Helly for Fr. Eugen Moran
Let me say a word about the relationship Gene and I developed over a period of fifty years. We first met in Woodstock College in Baltimore where the two of us were students of theology. When Gene arrived there in 1954, I had already been ordained; I was a lordly senior and Gene a mere freshman. By Fr. Vic Helly, S.J.
Fr. Eugene Moran, SJ (1927-2004)
Fr. Gene Moran was not someone I had extensive contacts with over the years. Indeed, some of you here would be in far better positions than I to speak about him. Many of his fellow Jesuits, too, who knew him best are abroad or out of Manila. As is the new Provincial, though I suspect Fr. Danny Huang probably had even less contact with Gene than I. By Fr. William Abbott, S.J.
Three Questions in Heaven
did not have the good fortune to know Fr. Gene Moran very well. Just when I was sent to work here three years ago, Fr. Gene was getting ready to leave for his next assignment in Ateneo de Zamboanga. All we had was a three-month transition period when Fr. Gene and I had a number of meetings. And so, my interactions with Fr. Gene have been quite limited, and my memories of him quite few. By Fr. Johnny Go, SJ
