Praying for the repose of his soul…God bless him…


Eternal rest grant unto him Oh Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him.


May God take this holy and selfless priest directly to heaven. I will pray for his soul.
If he is in heaven already, God can use the prayers to help another priest


John 15:13. No greater love has a man than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.


Eternal rest grant him, O Lord
And let perpetual light shine upon him.
May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed
Through the mercy of God
Rest in peace.


God rest his soul.
