For the repose of the servant of God, John Aldridge
« on: September 25, 2013, 10:12:28 AM »
John was a wonderful, wise and funny man, and an active and beloved member of our parish family. Please pray for the repose of his soul and for his wife of over 40 years, his three children and grandson.

May his memory be eternal!
"If but ten of us lead a holy life, we shall kindle a fire which shall light up the entire city."

Memory eternal!
"Your children shall become the head, but you... will become the tail of the Church; therefore your judges will be those who have always preserved the Catholic Faith... they will be the Orthodox and true Catholics since they have never accepted heretics... but have remained zealous for the True Faith."

Memory eternal.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Memory Eternal.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Just returned from the funeral - it was literally standing room only (and not just because we don't have pews - we did provide chairs!) The church was packed with people who loved and respected John.

He was buried right next to our beloved priest, Fr. Jacob, who fell  asleep in the Lord in January.
