Pray for the Repose of the Soul of Msgr. Robert C. Wurtz

I ask all of my blog readers to say a prayer for the repose of the soul of Msgr. Robert C. Wurtz, pastor of Our Lady of Victory Basilica, who passed away on December 12, 2006. I have been a fan of the website for the Our Lady of Victory Basilica especially the panoramic view of the Basilica. Go to the website and click on the picture and while holding down, move the pointer around.

Msgr. Wurtz always made sure to write nice messages in the church bulletin each week about Our Blessed Mother. He served the Basilica for approximately 30 years of his life. May the Virgin Mary lead his soul to Jesus Christ.

Requiem aeternam dona ei, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat ei. Requiescat in pace. Amen.

I heard about Msgr. Wurtz's passing this morning from a friend in our homeschool group. I know he was a dedicated pastor and promoter of Fr. Baker's cause for canonization. Rest in peace!

Are you from the Buffalo area? We used to live in Cheektowaga, and would get to the Basilica at least once a month. I would just go there on rainy afternoons to walk around. We are in Lockport now, and with gas prices being what they are, we only get there a few times a year now.

I will be sure to add Msgr. Wurtz to my intentions in my daily Office. Also thanks for letting me know that St. Teresa of Avila has chosen me! Pax et bonum!
