Tom Hennessy sings the praises of Jimmy Breslin's favorite priest:

[Brooklyn's Fr. John Powis] kept his Sunday tradition of having the congregation sing "Happy Birthday" to members celebrating that occasion.

Once when a little girl missed the cue to stand for the song, Powis caught her disappointment, summoned her to the front of the church, and had the congregation sing a second time just for her. Who would not love such a man?

Uncle Di.
