Rest In Peace
It is with great sorrow that I send condolences to the family, friends, clergy, colleagues and flock of
Bishop Daniel Lytle Dolan (28 May 1951-26 April 2022),
long-time Pastor of Saint Gertrude the Great Church in West Chester, Ohio, who died suddenly
on the Feast of Our Lady of Good Counsel,
26 April. He was 70 years old.
Réquiem aetérnam dona ei, Dómine, et lux perpétua lúceat ei. Requiéscat in pace. Amen.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him.
May he rest in peace.
“Soar up my Soul, unto thy rest
Cast off this loathsome load. …
The flowers of everlasting spring,
do grow for thy repast.”
St Robert Southwell SJ (1561-1595) Martyr
Bishop Dolan was a follower and benefactor of Anastpaul.com for many years now.
He was a Holy and learned man.
A true follower of Christ, “meek and humble of heart.”
I would like too, to mention Bishop Dolan’s extended flock, in particular, those in France, Nigeria and South Africa,
I mention Marie and Pauline, who now, like myself feel bereft of a true Father.
“And I saw the river, over which
every soul must pass
to reach the Kingdom of Heaven
and the name of that river, was suffering.
And I saw a boat
which carries souls across the river
and the name of that boat, was love.”
St John of the Cross (1542-1591)
