Ronald Anderson, S.J


Dear Philosophy Students,

    I have some very sad news to pass along to you. A member of the Philosophy faculty, Prof. Ronald Anderson, S.J., died Saturday evening. He was found in his room around 1pm Sunday afternoon; the police think he died some time during the night.

Please keep Ron and his family and friends in your prayers.

Praying that he may rest in peace


Eternal rest grant to him O Lord, let perpetual light shine upon him. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.


Ron and his family are in my prayers.


May he rest in peace. :gopray:


Daily mass for the repose of his soul.


Grant him eternal rest O Lord. Peace and comfort for his family and friends.




Our Father in Heaven
Holy be Your Name
Your Kingdom come
Your Will be done
On earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our sins
As we forgive those who sin against us
Do not bring us to the test
But deliver us from evil.

Hail Mary, full of grace!
The Lord is with you
Blessed are you among women
And Blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God
Pray for us sinners
Now and at the hour of our death.

Glory be to the Father,
And to the Son,
And to the Holy Spirit.

As it was in the beginning
Is now and ever shall be
World without end.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord,
And let perpetual light shine upon him.

May he rest in peace.

May the souls of the faithfully departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.



Lord, please grant comfort and strength to Ronald’s family and friends. Amen.
