Thomas F. Ryan SJ free pdf Thomas F. Ryan was a man of immense energy, with a strong commitment to social justice. He combined religion and dedication to the poor in Ireland, China and Hong Kong. As a scholastic in Belvedere College, he taught his classes, took an MA at University College Dublin, and was deeply involved with the Belvedere Newsboys' Club and in work for young people in remand homes. He was a very capable organiser and administrator, both within the Society of Jesus and as a member of the Hong Kong government.
