The Passing of Fr Benedict Joseph Groschel CFR

6 Oct

For those of you who remember the Days of Mother Angelica’s EWTN, one Priest comes to mind. Born Robert Peter Groschel in Jersey City, NJ, a PATH Train Ride away from both Lower and Midtown Manhattan, Fr Benedict Joseph Groschel graced the Airwaves of EWTN for many years.
I thank Deacon Greg Kandra of Our Lady Queen of Martyrs R C Church in Forest Hills, Queens, for posting this announcement on Google+. For once, I found out about a Known American’s Death on something other than on CBC Radio One Montreal.
He was one of the Founders of The Franciscan Friars of The Renewal and a Psychologist.
He was in a lot of pain over the last few years.
Keep him in your prayers.

Requiem In Pace
