Biography

  • Birth: Thomas John (Brother Daniel) Linskens was born on July 12, 1937.
  • Death: He died on May 7, 2001, at age 63.
  • Occupation: He was an O.S.B.
  • Note: PEACE
    On May 7, 2001, Brother Daniel Linskens,
    O.5.B.,monk of Saint Meinrad Archabbey,
    died peacefully in the Lord. Having
    suffered a heart attack in December, he
    developed serious complications following
    heart surgery, which led to a long and
    difficult hospitalization. Beginning the day
    before his death in the monastery infirmary,
    his confreres took turns staying with him
    round the clock.
    Brother Daniel was born in Appleton,
    Wisconsin, on July 12, 1937, to John and
    Gertrude (Thyssen) Linskens, and received
    the name Thomas John at his baptism.
    In 1951,after completing his elementary
    education at St. Theresa Grade School
    in Appleton, young Thomas enrolled at
    St. Placid Hall, Saint Meinrad's former
    house of studies for those considering a
    vocation as a Benedictine brother.
    Brother Daniel was invested as a novice
    at Saint Meinrad on March 10, 1956, and
    professed his simple vows on April 7, 1957.
    His profession of perpetual vows took place
    on July 16, 1960, the Solemnity of Our Lady
    of Einsiedeln.
    Shortly after his first profession, Brother
    Daniel was assigned to undertake nursing
    studies at the Sacred Heart School of
    Nursing in Yankton, South Dakota. At the
    time of this appointment, no one-not
    Archabbot Bonaventure, not Brother
    Daniel-could have foreseen the full extent
    of the blessings that lay ahead for Saint
    Meinrad and the surrounding community
    as a result of this decision.
    Brother Daniel graduated from nursing
    school in May 1961,achieving the second
    highest score in his class on the exam for
    professional nurse licensure. Upon his return
    to Saint Meinrad as a registered nurse, he
    began what would be his lifelong work,
    first as infirmarian, then as director of the
    health service.
    In a letter to Archabbot Bonaventure shortly
    before his graduation, Brother Daniel
    observed: "Three years seems a long time,
    but we have only scratched the surface in
    the knowledge of medicine." Brother Daniel
    would spend the next 40 years digging deeper.
    Always studying and improving himself
    professionally, he received permission in
    1976to continue his formal studies, achieving
    the title of physician assistant following
    his graduation from Emory University in
    Atlanta, Georgia, in 1979.Brother Daniel
    realized another dream in 1990,when our
    health service was designated officially as a
    rural health clinic, and his services became
    available more widely, especially to the poor
    in the area.
    Over the years, countless monks, students,
    co-workers, dependents and neighbors
    benefitted firsthand from Brother Daniel's
    patient, persistent, steady application of his
    skills. For their part, state officials, doctors
    and other health professionals who worked
    with Brother Daniel always commented on
    the high degree of professionalism that
    marked every aspect of his work. With good
    reason, he was simply called "Doc" by many
    in the community.
    But to speak of Brother Daniel's competence
    and skill is to tell only a part of the story. No
    portrait of Brother Daniel is complete without
    a mention of his seemingly super-human
    generosity. Any time of day or night, he
    made himself available, whether to answer a
    fire or rescue call, or to see a patient outside
    of regular hours. Others' needs were always
    uppermost in his mind.
    Neither would any portrait of Brother Daniel
    be complete without mentioning his wise,
    objective analysis of any situation, healthrelated
    or not. During the last several years
    of his life, he served as an elected member
    of the Council of the Archabbot, where, in
    measured tones, he always seemed to ask
    the right questions to help move the deliberations
    along.
    Finally, there should be mention of what
    a handyman Brother Daniel was. He was
    almost as skilled at woodworking, electronics
    and auto mechanics as he was with
    medicine. He loved to "putz," as he called
    it, in his rare spare time.
    The outpouring of emotion at Brother
    Daniel's death is a recognition of how much
    we have lost, to speak in human terms. It is
    also an affirmation of this great man's total
    devotion to serving Christ in the care of all
    God's little ones. May he, who never hesitated
    to interrupt his own rest for the sake of
    one in need, now find eternal rest in the
    arms of the God who heals all ills, and wipes
    away every tear from our eyes.
    The Office of the Dead will be prayed on
    Thursday, May 10, in the Archabbey Church.
    The Funeral Liturgy will be celebrated
    at 10:00a.m. on Friday, May 11,in the
    Archabbey Church. Burial will follow in
    the Archabbey Cemetery. For the repose
    of his soul, three Masses will be offered by
    each monk of the Archabbey. The customary
    suffrages are recommended to all monks of
    our Congregation.
    Archabbot Lambert
    and Community.
