Requiem for a Deacon
A convert to the Catholic Faith.
A great devotee of the Roman rite.
A military veteran, a twin, a civil servant, high school teacher, volunteer, father, husband, brother, uncle, grandfather, friend to many. A speaker of French.
An enthusiast of all things good, true, and beautiful.
A close and personal friend he will be missed by all.
A permanent deacon at the Church of St. Agnes in St. Paul, Minnesota.
He gave a son to the Church as priest.
Please pray for the repose of his soul.
Saints abound. Be inspired. Great men are amongst us.
I will always remember the joy of seeing him in Rome at the catacomb of Priscilla on the Via Salaria. Warm Roman memories.
Bernie, I will love you forever. Thank you for having taught us the Roman Liturgy according to the mind of the Church. You were always nice to us and helped make the sacristy a welcoming place.
