Eternal be his memory.
May He remember all your offerings and accept the fat of your holocausts.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Memory eternal!

According to many he was the most respected priest in ACROD, a true servant of the Lord.  I was surprised to hear about this; he has been having some on and off health problems, but to the folks I was speaking to his passing came as a surprise.

"Your Priests shall clothe themselves with righteousness, and your Saints shall rejoice with joy."  May he fall into both groups in the Lord's eternal kingdom!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

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

May Father Dutko's Memory be Eternal and May the Lord comfort Father Dutko's Loved ones during this period of sadness combined with the joy of the Risen Lord.

Amen!

Memory eternal!
