December 31, 2019
Each year, between Christmas and New Years Day, I re-post the Top 6 posts of the past year. Yesterday morning, I posted the #3 most read post of 2019. It was a homily I delivered on May 28, 2019 at a Mass celebrating the 50th anniversary of ordination for Fr. Jerry Kirkhoff.
Yesterday afternoon, Fr. Jerry passed away with his family by his side.
For this homily to be re-posted on my site on the same day he died was truly Providential.
If you did not have an opportunity to read the post, please do — it provides a loving snapshot of who Fr. Jerry was as a priest and as a man.
Please join me in praying for the repose of his soul and for peace and comfort for his family.
