The Repose of the soul of Fr. Robert Ballweg


#1

****Father Robert Ballweg, a 45 year old Priest from Karlsruhe, Germany, died while on a bus trip to Rome for Pentecost. The cause is believed to have been a heart attack. His last homily was regarding how to grieve properly. May the gracious and loving Lord reveal His mercy to Father Ballweg in judgment. Lord, let your perpetual light shine upon him. And may his soul, and the souls of the faithful departed, rest in peace. Amen.
