Msgr. Malone embraces Msgr Scott Friend as he is presented papal congratulations
Msgr. Malone embraces Msgr Scott Friend as he is presented papal congratulations
“In an age when so much bad news has been reported about clergy and children, Msgr. Bernard Malone has been the antithesis of such. He has been called by other names, other titles, ‘Msgr. Bernard, Msgr. Barney, Msgr. Senior.’  He has also been called Arkansas’s answer to a leprechaun, (and) he has been called ‘cute’ by far more than I can recall here. 

“But I can tell you that time and time again he has been called a good priest, a wonderful confessor, a spiritual father to many of our seminarians and a humble priest.”

As I was thinking of words to describe Monsignor Malone, I ran across these from his Nephew Fr. Francis Malone and could think of none better.  Many of you know that Monsignor Malone held the first Mass in Hot Springs Village at the Callella Fire Station in 1973, for approximately 15 Village Catholics.  He was that big a part of so many peoples lives here, that he played a major role in Hot Springs Village history.  To many of you, he was a best friend, and someone to look up to as a way to live a life of Christ in this world. 

I felt a need  to write this brief article, because he was such a part of my early life as well.  You see, Monsignor Malone was the first ParIsh Priest that my brothers, sisters and I were around.  Our first real exposure to our Catholic Faith. What better example could anyone get than this wonderful man.  He was my father's best friend, and a true friend of all of my extended family.  As I lost touch with him in my career, what an amazing surprise for me to see him when I moved to Hot Springs Village! 

Monsignor Malone did not treat my family and I in any special way when he was a parish priest at tiny St Mary's Parish in rural Arkansas. It was just the way he treated everyone.  He was an incredible role model for everyone he was ever around, regardless of their age.  The joy of Christ, a joy that surpasses all of the trials of this life, shone forever on his face and in his eyes. 

Monsignor Malone, you will be forever missed.  However, you will be forever in the hearts of all of the thousands of lives that you have touched.  Whenever we raise a glass of wine in toast, let us all remember Monsignor is right there toasting with us.  Forever an example of humility, kindness, and love of others before ourselves.
