A prayer request

The old monsignor that I wrote about here has died. His obituary is here. He had a long, excellent career in ministry, very little of which I actually knew about.

As it turned out, what we thought was just a few senior moments, the struggles of age, or maybe a bit of dementia was something quite awful — a brain tumor, malignant, irremovable, terminal.

Monsignor Robert Hoffman

I didn’t know Msgr. Hoffman well, but I liked him and respected him. He was a pretty good homilist, a kind man, and an able priest — for more than 50 years, no less. And he will be missed. Please remember him in your thoughts and prayers.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord…

  1. I will miss him so much. He was such an inspiration to many. A truly kind, wise, caring Saint. We’ll miss you Father Bob.
