Our Friend Fr. Benedict Groeschel died Yesterday

by Steve Ray on October 4, 2014

IMG_4513.PNGIt is with sadness that I mention that father Benedict died last night. Janet and I had gotten very fond of him and spent time in his retreat center. We will treasure the times we spent with him.

Because of his habit and his beard I told him one time that every time I saw him it made me want to read The Hobbit again.

He was aged 81 and died on the eve of his patron saint’s feast day, St. Francis.

Please pray for the repose his soul.

Grant unto Fr. Groeschel eternal rest, Oh Lord. And may your perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace, Amen.

A great voice and speaker for the Church. He will be missed.
