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 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.
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.
