    In your charity, please pray for the repose of the soul of:

    Fr. Paul Schoonbroodt (1933–2012)

    He was parish priest of Steffeshausen, Belgium and a hero of the traditionalist movement in Europe. He gave several retreats for us at Most Holy Trinity Seminary, and was a faithful supporter of our work, especially during our problems here in America late 2009.

    He was also the target of a lawsuit from SSPX because, even though he was a sedevacantist, he was involved in the project of putting on the Internet the conferences of Abp. Lefebvre, some of which Menzingen wanted to suppress. (Too "hard line"!)

    Fr. Schoonbroodt died "with his boots on." Even at his advanced age, he still had the remarkable energy of a young missionary, and took care not only of his home parish in Belgium, but also of missions in Sweden and the Czech Republic, where he died from injuries in a car accident on his missionary journey.

    May he rest in peace!

  • May eternal rest be granted unto the soul of this great Priest.  :pray:

    Repost:

    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.

    I put the notice of Fr Schoonbroodt's death in the death notices forum a little earlier today. I am not sure how accurate it is that he died of the consequences of the motor accident he was in recently. So far as I can make out, he was operated on for gall bladder problems - presumably not directly connected with the accident - and died the following day. He was of course one of the very last traditional priests to have been appointed to the canonical office of parish priest (or pastor). I now know only of Fr Jean Siegel, appointed to the parish of Thal Drulingen in Alsace in 1958 and still at his post, and - incredibly - in occupation of the (tiny) parish church where he offers his Mass with no mention of the current usurper in the Vatican.

    It would be comparatively easy for us to be holy if only we could always see the character of our neighbours either in soft shade or with the kindly deceits of moonlight upon them. Of course, we are not to grow blind to evil
