Fr. Jack passed peacefully from this life during the afternoon. He had been living with us during his final illness.
I did not know him well, but if the constant stream of visitors who came to him in his last weeks--some quite literally from half a world away--is any indication, the Lord's goodness came to dwell in a great many lives through his ministry and kindness.
Thank you, Brother. Thank you for the good examples of your missionary zeal and your patience in your illness and dying.
Requiescat in pace.
