Fr Dana Christensen’s cri du cœur: his own funeral and Traditionis custodes

Father Dana is dying of ALS. He’s a friend of friends for me, and I met him a number of times here in North Carolina. What a great priest. Read his cry from the heart by clicking on “Continue reading” above. Hail Mary…

His very life of profound faith in the midst of impossible circumstances – his very life now on what will be his death bed being an act of intercession for the entire Church – is a great encouragement to me.

    The beauty, eloquence and truth of this letter is certainly underpinned by Father’s situation.
