Sorrow Too Soon

Father Richard John Neuhas died yesterday after a brief illness. He will be sorely missed.

Details on funeral arrangements are here, along with some past columns written by Fr. Neuhas on death, dying, and becoming Catholic.

In paradisum deducant te Angeli; in tuo adventu suscipiant te Martyres, et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Jerusalem.

Chorus Angelorum te suscipiant, et cum Lazaro quondam paupere aeternam habeas requiem.

May the Angels lead thee into paradise: may the Martyrs receive thee at thy coming, and lead thee unto the holy city of Jerusalem.

May the choir of Angels receive thee, and mayest thou have eternal rest with Lazarus, who once was poor.
