Geoffrey Kirk

Early this Good Friday morning, Dr Geoffrey Kirk, priest, theologian, wit, satirist, blogger, bon viveur, slipped away into the Eternal Pasch. Tu, qui cuncta scis et vales, Qui nos pascis hic mortales: Tuos ibi commensales, Coheredes et sodales Fac sanctorum civium.

Sad news indeed. Fr Kirk was, among other things, the scourge of cant and a doughty defender of the Truth. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.

Requiescat in pace. I have, as I am sure have many, been praying for him.

Fr PJM said...

Let the light of Thy Face shine on him, O Lord. Show him Thy Face and he will be saved.

Fr. Hunwicke -

I am sorry for the loss of your good friend, and a great priest. May St. Michael defend his soul, and choirs of angels sing him to heaven, and bring him to see the face of his Savior, our King.

I will offer a Mass for the happy repose of his soul.
