Right before his death, he had just finished offering the Mass.
When it was over, he fell asleep and died shortly thereafter.
The alleluias were a little more strained than usual at our seminary Mass today, and there were several more sniffles than typical, but we are a people of the resurrection who now have another powerful intercessor.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
