  • This morning, while unselfishly offering himself to pray Mass for the Catholics in Necedah, WI (NOT the crazy shrine there), before going to the Altar, Father Hector Bolduc passed away. He will be dearly missed by all of his parishioners. Please pray for the repose of his dear soul.  :cry:

    I certainly will remember him in my prayers.  He offered me excellent council about praying for enemies and those who would stand in false judgement.
    He also gave me his account of acquiring St. Vincent's in KC and gave me a ride in his 66 or 68 Buick!

    The Præmonstratensians had some of the most beautiful prayers for the faithful departed in their liturgical books. From the tome In Paradisum deducant te Angeli: Suffragia Praemonstratensia pro Defunctis (West de Pere, WI: St. Norbert College Press, 1953), here are the Latin texts of some of the prayers recited by the Præmonstratensians for their departed. The English text is a loose translation.




    To Thee, O Lord, we commend the soul of Thy servant N. (or, of Thy handmaid N.) and the souls of Thy servants and handmaids and of all the faithful departed, that dead to this world they may live unto Thee; and those sins which they committed by the frailty of worldly conversation, do Thou blot out by the pardon of most merciful loving-kindness. Through Christ, our Lord. ℣. Amen.

    Thy mercy, O holy Lord, Father almighty, eternal God, in the affection of kindness for others we pray, who are not sufficient to pray for our sins, yet confiding in Thy gratuitous loving-kindness and wonted benignity, we implore Thy clemency, that Thou mayest receive with compassion the soul of Thy servant N. (or, of Thy handmaid N.) and the souls of Thy servants and handmaids and of all the faithful departed returning unto Thee. May Michael the Angel of Thy Testament be with them, and by the hands of Thy holy Angels do Thou vouchsafe to place them in the bosoms of Thy Patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; so that, freed from the princes of darkness and from the places of pains, they may now be confounded by no errors of primeval nativity or ignorance [original sin], or of their own iniquity or frailty; but rather, acknowledged by Thy Saints, they may joy in the repose of holy beatitude: so that, when the day of the great judgment will have come, they may, resurrected amongst Thy Saints and Elect, be perpetually satiated with the glory of Thy manifested contemplation. Through Christ, our Lord. ℣.Amen.







    Almighty and everlasting God, Who hast vouchsafed to breathe unto the human body a soul according to Thy similitude; whilst dust is returned unto dust according to Thy mandate, do Thou command Thine image to be associated with Thy Saints and Elect amidst eternal thrones, and do Thou kindly and mildly receive her returning unto Thee from the parts of [the terrestrial] Egypt, and do Thou send Thy holy Angels to meet her, and do Thou show unto her the way of justice, and the gates of thy glory do Thou open. Repel from her, we pray, O Lord, all the princes of darkness, and faithfully acknowledge the deposit which is Thine. Receive, O Lord, Thy creature, not created by strange gods, but by Thee, the only living and true God; for there is no other God but Thee, O Lord, and none other according to Thy works. Do Thou gladden the soul of Thy servant N. (or, of Thy handmaid N.) and the souls of Thy servants and handmaids and of all the faithful departed, and glorify them in the multitude of Thy mercy. Be not mindful, we pray, of their ancient iniquities: for as they did sin so also they denied Thee not, but signed with the sign of faith, they faithfully adored Thee, Who all things and them amidst all things didst thou make: Who livest and reignest throughout ages of ages. ℣. Amen.


    Here is a very touching Responsory that was chanted at the obsequies of the departed Præmonstratensians.




    ℟. Before I was born Thou didst know me, and unto Thine imagine, O Lord, didst Thou form me. * Now do I return Thee, O Creator, my soul. ℣. By my sins, O Lord, am I terrified, and before Thee I am confounded, when Thou shalt come to judge, do not Thou condemn me. * Now do I return Thee, O Creator, my soul.

  • He was my parish priest for about three years, and he brought my parents (and consequently, me) to the traditional movement.

    He was a highly intelligent man. He set up many churches and flew around the country to say masses at very distant places. He visited many people in prison and taught them about the faith and gave them baptism/communion/confirmation. Under his leadership, his parish grew from a small group in someone's basement to one of the largest churches in Wisconsin with well over a thousand people.

    He also had one of the largest antique collections in New Hampshire (which historians come to visit) and was well versed in history and art. He liked to read about revolutionary war history and read poems from many different languages (he knew five of them). When I was last with him he recited many poems for me that he had memorized. He also taught me a lot about how important Shakespeare was.

    My father is a project manager for an engineering firm, and he knows a lot about organizing people, and he says that father bolduc is one of the best organizers he knew. He worked tirelessly to do both the parish duties and the ones for many other churches that don't have a priest, going to bed at midnight and getting up at four every day.

    As for me personally, one of the best things he has done for me is to get me to say some prayers for the souls in purgatory every night. I've been doing it for eight years now, so anyone that has been released can ultimately contribute his or her freedom to father bolduc's sermon.

    I thought since I personally knew the man, I should offer up a small testimony to his achievements here on Earth. He had his faults like all of us, but I think that he fulfilled God's will and purpose to the best of his abilities. Hopefully we will all be able to meet him again when we stand before the face of God.

    In regards to being a responsible man, would it be interesting to learn, after six years of accumulating all the wisdom you could, that you had it right all alon

  • Sorry about double post, but I forgot to add that he was also responsible for having over 300 children adopted into traditional catholic family homes.

  • You will be able to watch the solemn high mass for Father Bolduc online. I just found out, and here's the link if you wish. The Funeral is at 10:30AM CST, Friday morning, but the website says it will be broadcast at 1PM CST on the website. So you can check at both times. Here is the link.

    Anyone who wishes to watch it, can do so now, regardless if you're here for it or not.
