Friends, please say a prayer for the repose of the souls of Rachel and Robert. Rachel was my grandmother. She died Sunday night at the age of 81. She died while dancing. I'm not joking. Robert was a dear friend, and a professor of political science. He wrote THE book on Rousseau. He died of cancer, after a protracted struggle. Just before he came to need hospice care and lost his ability to communicate, he renounced Satan and all his pomps, and was reborn in Christ through Baptism, administered (it being an emergency) by MM.
Thanks be to God. May their souls, and the souls of all the faithful, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
