Fr. Sean Conaty has died. He was a priest of the Hexam and Newcastle Diocese. I only met him a few times, but he always greeted me as though we were friends. He was an exorcist and a speaker at Charismatic and deliverance conferences. He contributed to a book on exorcism and deliverance. he was an engaging speaker and a great raconteur. He had worked in Chile in his younger days, and had been arrested on one occasion by the military police. He came home unscathed but angry. He was a good listener and a good learner, and when he knew something he was confident in sharing it. Although I did not see much of him, not having him around will be strange. For many in both the Charismatic Renewal and the ministry of deliverance, he will be greatly missed. He wont be able to tell any good stories in heaven, though - they have heard them all!
