For my priest, Father Matthew MacKay
« on: July 26, 2010, 11:09:42 PM »
Fr. Matthew suffered a massive heart attack and fell asleep in the Lord this morning. Please pray for his soul, his family, and my parish of St. Joseph. We dearly loved our pastor, and I as well as everyone in my parish is in a mixed state of shock and grief.

May his memory be eternal!

Sorry for your loss.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Memory eternal!

Lord, have mercy on the family and parish family he left behind.
He spoke it as kindly and heartily as could be; as if a man dashed a gallon of cold water in your broth and never doubted you'd like it all the better.
