The coffin with Father Jaki arrived in Hungary the week after Easter, but the funeral could not be celebrated until 29 April, so Antonio Colombo remained in Hungary – guest of Maria and Gergely Bogányi – to prepare it adequately. A Mass for Father Jaki was said at the Budapest University before the actual funeral.

After the official commemoration by the Archabbot, a few words from Becky MayhewAfter the official commemoration by the Archabbot, a few words from Becky Mayhew. Gergely Bogányi translated them into Hungarian. Becky said:
“Lessons Learned from Father Jaki:
1. The lives of the saints teach us that life is a valley of tears, that we must offer up our suffering and move forward, in faith.
2. It is important to draw strength from laughter, friendship, beauty, and excellence.
3. Ora et labora. Pray and work.
4. Pray to St. Joseph, and trust in the mercy of God.
Today we leave Father Jaki in the merciful hands of God, and we ask, ‘St. Joseph, pray for us.’”
A few words from Antonio ColomboA few words from Antonio Colombo. Antonio said:
“It has been my privilege to be close to Father Stanley Jaki during the last ten years (he has been several times a guest of my family) and I have been close to him also during the last ten minutes of his life.
I witnessed his deep faith, his immense culture, and I have been honored by his friendship.
I feel that his contribution about the relation between science and religion has been exemplary.
Father Jaki loved to quote the statement of Saint Paul about the ‘reasonable worship’ we should offer to the Lord. His life has been an example of this ‘reasonable worship’.
Together with other friends, we will try to keep alive the memory of his life and of his works.”

(I urge you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, your reasonable worship. – Rom 12:1)
A few words from Gergely BogányiA few words from Gergely Bogányi. Gergely said:
“The first consequence of original sin, the fading of one's sense of mind had only slightly affected Stanley Jaki. It is his unique and always clear approach to things that amazed his students, and the readers of his books. It is this quality of his that silenced all those who did not wish to take in his message.
In the field of science, religion and creation, he was an outstanding expert. Pope Benedict XVI thanked him personally for his tireless activity, which is one of the reasons why even his opposers cannot help but admit to his greatness.
As for us, it is our duty to deal with the legacy of this renowned scientist and saintly man accordingly.
I am very grateful to Bishop Abbey Asztrik Várszegi for making it possible for all three of us to speak, and for all of us to be able to say good-bye here in Pannonhalma as well.
Father Stanley, may the Lord give You eternal rest, and may perpetual light shine on You forever. Amen.”

2009 - 2012 - New Hope, KY - Putting in order Father Jaki Papers


PictureDescription

When Father Jaki died, the flat he lived in (Lawrenceville, NJ) had to be emptied. Francis Manion was in charge of the operation. All the books in the library of Father Jaki were sent to Seton Hall (some 70 boxes). All the papers and books/articles Father Jaki wrote, and the related documentation, were sent to the Real View Books publishing house (New Hope, KY) for further review (some 60 boxes). In September 2009, Antonio Colombo started going through the papers, with two aims: Finding the items with legal value (e.g. agreeement with publishers) – to be given to the Jaki Estate – and put together all the physical items (books, articles) that make up Stanley Jaki's Publications list.

In the lower part of the desk can be seen some of the floppies Father Jaki used. They have been copied to disk (about 550 of them). Father Jaki, of course, was familiar with more modern hardware, but had to use the floppies to copy files to an old (MS-DOS) 386 PC, the only one on which he could see the text he was writing as it would have been printed at the printing shop (using a very old version of WordPerfect, and, of course, a very old laser printer). Most of what Father Jaki wrote from the year 1990 onward is available in electronic form.
