Last night one of the brothers here passed over into eternity. During his long, last illness, Fr. Sylvan would call me often asking for prayer. His desire to join others in prayer was a support to me in many ways.
Fr. Sylvan was my favorite friar to go to for confession, and was the source of many of my "from my confessor" posts. Check out his pastoral counsel on:
Love of neighbor.
Stages of the spiritual life.
Priesthood and loneliness.
Requiescat in pace. Now you pray for me.
