Today, we attended the requiem mass for our wedding celebrant Fr. Martin. There were about sixty Redemptorist priests who took turns to bless his coffin with holy water. Fr. Martin died at dawn Monday, the 26th of April. He is survived by his sister Maureen who stayed with him in the remaining days of his life.
