Mons Arthur Calkins, RIP

Earlier today, I learned of the death of Mons Arthur Calkins, a retired priest of the archdiocese of New Orleans who worked for the Ecclesia Dei commission for nearly 20 years, from 1991 to 2010. Many of the communities which celebrate the traditional liturgy were encouraged by his friendship and support especially in those years. Of your charity, please pray for his eternal repose.

Deus, qui inter apostolicos sacerdotes famulum tuum Arthurum sacerdotali fecisti dignitate vigere: praesta quaesumus: ut eorum quoque perpetuo aggregetur consortio. Per Christum, Dominum nostrum. Amen.

God, who among the apostolic priests made Thy servant Arthur to flourish with priestly dignity: grant, we beseech Thee: that he may also be joined unto their perpetual society. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
