900th Anniversary Mass for the Death of Blessed Frá Gerard, Founder of Our Order

 

Blessed Frá Gerard epitaph

Here lies Gerard, the humblest man among the dwellers in the East;

The servant of the poor, a welcoming friend to strangers.
He was lowly in mien, but within him shone a noble heart.
The measure of his goodness may be seen within these walls.

He was provident in many things, painstaking in all he did.

He undertook many tasks of diverse nature.
Stretching out his arms diligently to many lands,
he gathered from everywhere the means to feed his people.

 

All are invited to attend Mass via Zoom, celebrated by Fr. Reginald Martin, OP on Thursday, September 3rd at noon PDT.  The Holy Mass will be celebrated with the intentions to ask our Founder for his intercession for the forthcoming election of the new Head of the Order, the ongoing reform efforts, and for the soul of Gonçalo Villas Boas, the oldest son of our Lieutenant ad interim, Fra’ Ruy Villas Boas, who passed away suddenly this month.
