A good friend of mine informed me that he was with 2 priests at the time.
He was 81.
I had the priviledge of providing an article for Catholic Life - when I interviewed Father - it was in the last ever issue of the publication. He told me a very interesting thing - he said if Pope Francis allows Holy Communion to people in 2nd unions without annulments, it would make the Pope a heretic!
He was a great fount of knowledge on many topics - including the priest hidey hole at Scotney Castle - Lamberhurst. He had a superb knowledge about trains and train lines. But he had a great love for the Old Latin Mass - his sermons were doctrinally spot on - not too long or short - but sermons even my 10 year old "got".
May he Rest in Peace.
