It is with sorrow that I reflect upon the loss of a truly beautiful man, Fr. Tesclesghi. A more fully realized teacher and monastic priest it is hard to imagine. Here is a man who took "the bull by the horns". Whether in confession, practical advice, or even in humor, he was a man to express his heart fully. A great mind, a lover of St. Paul and theology, his preaching was illuminating.
Now he has reached his goal, to meet God. Therefore "praise God! good brother" as first spoken by Brother Felix at the monastery door when two Pennsylvania itinerants reached Our Lady of Fatima in the heart of an ice storm at 4 AM. Those are special memories!! What Grace and Blessing the Lord offers. WE MISS YOU ABBA!

I do not hide her riches (Wisdomof Solomon 7:13).
