A death in my monastery today

Abbot Claude Ehringer, O.S.B., died this afternoon.

He would have turned 99 in November.

He was our superior from the early 1960's until he retired from that role in 1994.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon him!

He and all who love him will be in my prayers.

The Abbot will be in my prayers. It is always sad to loose a beloved religious leader.

I will also remember the Abbott in prayer, as well as the community he leaves for, we can hope, greener pastures.
