Monsignor John Joseph Sweeny, 81, pastor of Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church in Santa Clara for three decades. He is held dear by parishioners because he embraced traditional Catholicism -- celebrating Latin Mass and keeping church open around the clock -- he had suffered from respiratory illness for many months and died Tuesday at his family home in San Andreas. A quiet, humble man who was accessible and a good listener, was known for his unwavering theology and conservative politics. Under him, Our Lady of Peace, now at 5,000 members, became a national model for orthodox Catholics.
