A very dear friend of mine died yesterday. Msgr. Vincent John Fecher was such a devoted priest and good man. He generously helped me get through chunks of Latin in the 2004 Roman Martyrology so I could work on my second book. And, even though the last church he pastored was tiny ... about 50 or 60 people in attendance each week at a small chapel way out in the country ... he nonetheless put his full heart into each mass. His desire was to merely be a voice for the Lord; he would point to the tabernacle behind him and say that he hoped the homilies would come from there, from God, through his voice.
