Abbot Claude in your prayers today.
Abbot Claude died this past Sept. 17th, 2007, at Prince of Peace Abbey, Oceanside, Ca. He would have been 99 this November. His funeral Mass and burial will take place, Thursday, Sept 27, 2007, at Prince of Peace Abbey, Oceanside, Ca. Our loss is heaven's gain.
This photo was taken last year on Sept. 18th. Please check Fr. Stephanos's blog for full biography. I can personally attest Abbot Claude knew just the right thing to say at exactly the right moment.
Eternal rest, grant unto him, O Lord.
And let perpetual light shine upon him.
May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, Through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
