Resquiat in Pacem Father Robert J. Fox

Father Robert Fox
Well known Marian priest Father Robert J. Fox sadly passed away on Thanksgiving Day. The following is from the Fatima Family Apostolate International website:
FATHER ROBERT J. FOX FOUNDER OF FATIMA FAMILY APOSTOLATE HAS PASSED AWAY

Father Robert J. Fox passed away at his home on Thanksgiving day at 12:45 P.M. He died a peaceful and happy death. He was anointed the night before and he also offered Mass. A wake service will be held at the Shrine of The Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville Alabama. The body will arrive at 3:00 P.M. and the rosary at 7:00 P.M. His burial will be in Alexandria South Dakota at St. Mary of Mercy Catholic Church. Please check this site for more information for more funeral details.

Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord
and may Your perpetual light shine upon him.
May he rest in peace. Amen.

As far as I can remember, Father Fox has taken many groups of pilgrims, especially young people on pilgrimages to Fatima. Up to fairly recently, I was enjoying Father's writing on his blog.

Thanks to Betty and Therese for sharing the news with me yesterday.

What an awesome priest he "is". I loved his preaching on the true message of Fatima that did not get caught up where so many strayed. This humble priest is in the hands of Our Mother now.

Here is webpage Fr. Fox that has audio from ewtn and his last interview by Doug Keck-Bookmark, it's good but sad too, just a few weeks before his death.
