    Patience is a conquering virtue. The learned say that, if it not desert you, It vanquishes what force can never reach; Why answer back at every angry speech? No, learn forbearance or, I'll tell you what, You will be taught it, whether you will or not.

  • I had a premonition, given his recent absence.

    Any idea what happened?

    He was a good egg.

    I will miss him.

    Yeah....any idea? His last post here was 11/29, so it must have been sudden...

  • Very sad to hear this.
    Matto was a good man and solid Catholic. He made good contributions to this forum. I'll miss him here.

  • Matto was very humble and charitable.  I recall a post about his conversion story to Tradition.  It was quite remarkable.  If I remember correctly, he visited an SSPX chapel and saw the Host shine like the sun.  I felt he must have been a very treasured soul for Our Lord to give him that sort of apparition.  In all his years here though, he never gave the impression that he was special in any way.  I will really miss him.

    I’ve tried to look up that post in the past but was not successful in finding it.  Maybe someone else will be able to find it.  

    RIP, Matto.

  • By the way, we shouldn't jump to any conclusions.  He didn't say he was sick and he was against the vaxx.  None of us know when the end will come.

  • Wow. RIP bud.:'(
    "Be kind; do not seek the malicious satisfaction of having discovered an additional enemy to the Church... And, above all, be scrupulously truthful. To all, friends and foes alike, give that serious attention which does not misrepresent any opinion, does not distort any statement, does not mutilate any quotation. We need not fear to serve the cause of Christ less efficiently by putting on His spirit". (Vermeersch, 1913).

    That's how God likes His servants.

  • I'm shocked. 
    Matto had a great understanding of so many things even while maintaining a  childlike innocence. I will miss his postings. He also had a great love for our Lady and I pray she is with him even at this moment. RIP Matto. Godspeed
