Requiescat in pace
A Memorial Mass for Jesuit Father Gerry Stockhausen will be held in the St. Anthony Chapel of St. Matthew's Cathedral on Wednesday, January 20 at 3:30pm. Fr. Gerry, a faithful friend of St. Matthew's and a regular Mass celebrant here, passed away last week after suffering with leukemia since last spring. All who knew Fr. Gerry are welcome to attend the Memorial Mass.
We take comfort that near the end of his life, Fr. Gerry recognized it was time to "fully place himself in the care and kindness of the Lord." Please remember him in praying the "Suspice," written by St. Ignatius Loyola.
Take Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my entire will, all that I have and possess. Thou hast given all to me. To Thee, O lord, I return it. All is Thine, dispose of it wholly according to Thy will. Give me Thy love and thy grace, for this is sufficient for me.
