From @fathercapo:
A week ago, I was presiding at the funeral of my father. But there’s a story behind this picture I took with @br.anthonyfreeman funeral card above my dad’s coffin last week. – Some of you you might know that the day my father died I was attending my friend seminarian’s @br.anthonyfreeman funeral services. While we were at Mass, during the moment of communion, as us priests were processing toward the altar to receive the most blessed Body and Blood of Christ, I passed by Anthony’s casket and experienced an overwhelming spiritual feeling that my dad was dying at that moment. I spontaneously prayed to Bro. Anthony, asking him to help my dad enter into Heaven and open for him the gates of Paradise. After we finished Mass, I discovered the missed call from my mom on my cell phone and got the news my dad had died. – Before we closed my dad’s coffin a week later, I prayed again to @br.anthonyfreeman and put his card on my dad’s pocket. I know Anthony accompanied my dad to Heaven!

Please join us in praying for @fathercapo and his family. The Lord has called Home His faithful servant, Rafael Capo Pascual, a loving parent, a Veteran, and dad to our dear friend @fathercapo.
.
Accept this prayer which I offer You, merciful Father, for those who have died, those who have gone before us marked with the sign of faith, and those whose faith in this life was known to You alone. Have mercy on them all and bring them into Your kingdom of peace and light without end where You and Your saints live in the happiness which this world has not known and cannot give. Amen.
.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

“The Catholic Church has taught for centuries that our prayers are of assistance to those who have died. We commend their soul to God’s mercy and pray for them. We can help them not only by our prayers, but also by offering a Mass in their name, by giving alms, by indulgences or other works of penance done for their benefit (CCC 1032).”

First of all,
I have never known Br. Anthony before, and i felt so sad with his early departure to the eternal life.
I want to share the pic I took during the sunday easter, which I then realized that our beloved Br. Anthony was there as a Cross Bearer (Acolyte).
May He Rest In Peace in the warmt of God’s Arms. And I would like say my deep condolence to his lovely family.

From @br.anthonyfreeman’s book: 📖🕊 #RIP
“HOLINESS CANNOT BE PUT OFF UNTIL HEAVEN
I was created for a positive reason, for a purpose, for a good. Thus my mission in this life is to fulfill that good. I may mess up along the way and have minor and major failures but no amount of failure changes the face that I have a purpose for being here. Our ticket to Heaven consists in holiness and our holiness is connected with God’s particular plan for each one of us, which will be different from person to person. No personal failure will render God’s plan for our lives obsolete.
When we die and go before God He will not ask us scripture verses by heart…He will ask us if we were who we were placed to be. For me that’s what holiness is. Holiness is being and doing what God wants of us no matter how small or big this is. There is no way around this, there is no plan B or second reason why God created us. Our happiness and plenitude is connected with God’s plan for our lives.
Getting to Heaven doesn’t mean we were perfect in fulfilling God’s plan but His plan is our path to getting there.
Thy Kingdom Come!”
—Br. Anthony Freeman LC, One Step Closer pg. 114

@br.anthonyfreeman Rest in peace, my brother. …

@br.anthonyfreeman Rest in peace, my brother. May the angels lead you into paradise. Please pray for us before the Risen Lord. He called you way too soon, as you had just finished your Spiritual Exercises and had just served Easter Sunday Mass with Pope Francis. I was looking forward to attending your ordination and meeting up with you next week in Rome. Please pray for us as we try to witness to the Joy of the Gospel among our young people, striving for holiness, showing our youth the way to holiness by staying strong in body, mind, and spirit. I will treasure our conversations, friendship, and your witness of faith, even here on IG as @catholic_life_coach. Rest in peace, my brother.

Please help us pray for Fr. Armando Brédice, he was an altar boy of Saint Padre Pio! #RIP 🙏❤️🕊
As a young priest, Father Armando wanted to carry out his mission in Africa although God had different plans for him. He was sent to Brazil and shortly before his death he acclaimed, “living here for all these years only makes me feel love in my heart for everything I’ve done. Everything passes, except love, "the priest said in an interview with the newspaper Correio Braziliense.
"I will be in this work until God wills, because I gave my life to Christ and, until my last moment and breathing, I will dedicate myself to Him,” he added.
Fr. Armando Brédice has passed away yesterday, at 100 years old. He is one of the two centenarian fathers in the Archdiocese of Brasília, Brazil. The other one is Father Guibaldo Orestes. They both are Italian but have been in Brazil for a very long time.

Father Armando Brédice, the Brazilian community loved and continues to love you! Thank you for giving your life to Christ, may He welcome you into His kingdom! 🕊

Eternal rest grant unto Fr. Armando Brédice, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon him.
May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

Rest In Peace, Billy Graham. Dr. Billy Graham …

Rest In Peace, Billy Graham.
Dr. Billy Graham said that that Pope John Paul II was the most influential voice for morality and peace in the world in the last 100 years.
Dr. Graham told Larry King he had the privilege of seeing the Pope on several occasions at the Vatican.
“And tonight, I have a very strange feeling of loss. I almost feel as though one of my family members has gone. I loved him very much and had the opportunity of discussing so many things with him. And we wrote each other several times during the years,” Dr. Graham said.
GRAHAM: That’s correct. He certainly did. He held my hand the first time that I met him about 1981 – he’d just been Pope for two years when I saw him first. Because when he was elevated to the papacy, I was preaching in his cathedral in Krakow that very day. And we had thousands of people in the streets. And watching the television today of Krakow has brought back many memories.
KING: You said that he was an Evangelist.
GRAHAM: He was, indeed. He traveled throughout the world to bring his Christian message to the world. And we see tonight the outpouring from the world that he touched. And I think he touched almost everybody in the whole world.
KING: What, Billy, in your thoughts – you said you feel like it’s a personal loss. What in the human sense was so special about him?
GRAHAM: I think it was his background in Poland. And I had finished preaching all over Poland, gotten to know many people, and I knew a little bit about where he came from.
“And he was a suffering pope, too. He suffered as much as anybody you could ever imagine. His mother died when he was young. And he had that terrible assassination attack. And through it all, he taught us how to suffer. And I think in recent days he’s taught us how to die.
