Fr Michael Melrose

A pleasure - a melancholy pleasure - in inheriting liturical books from someone else is afforded by the reading of thecPrayer Cards between the pages. Here is the First Mass Card of the late Fr Micael Melrose, pp of S Giles, Reading.

IPSE DOMINUS HOSTIA OMNIUM SACERDOTUM EST. IPSIQUE SUNT HOSTIAE SACERDOTES. S Paulinus de Nola

MICHAEL MELROSE
offered for the first time to the honour
and propitiation
of Almighty God
the Most August Sacrifice of the Mass
for the Peace of Holy Church
a blessing on all his friends and for
himself the gift of apostolic and
priestly charity.
ALL SAINTS CHELMSFORD
JULY 3rd, 1972

O ADMIRABILE COMMERCIUM

Father was a shy and bookish and devout priest very deeply loved and trusted by his people.

Another card when next I find Computer time.
