I am so sorry that he is dying of cancer, but I am happy that he will get to meet our Lord as a priest.

I pray for a miraculous healing so he can be restored to full health and experiment the next 50 years as a single, lonely, chaste, misunderstood and sometimes persecuted Priest. Let him taste the beauty and magnificence of God’s life on Earth. God, you can’t let this one get off the hook so easily. I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now
and at the hour of our death. Amen

Fr. Carmona passed away at about 2:30 on September 10.

I’m so grateful to my Bishop for ordaining Fr. Carmona. Fr. Carmona never had the opportunity to celebrate the Holy Mass on earth. He is praying the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with the greatest Priest; Our Lord, Jesus Christ! Our hope is in the name of the Lord, now and forever!
