Just received this from Father Cekada:
Dear Friend of Fr. Collins,
We regret to inform you that the lay executor for Fr. Collins' estate, (name redacted), claimed his body, and, in clear opposition to the final wishes Fr. Collins had expressed most recently before he died, cancelled the funeral arrangements that had been made.
This unfortunate turn of events ought to remind everyone that they should appoint someone as an executor or agent for funeral arrangements only if they are absolutely certain that the person can be trusted to respect their final wishes for their funeral.
We will be arranging a Solemn Mass for the repose of Fr. Collins' soul here at St. Gertrude the Great, and we will keep you informed of time and date so you can view the live webcast.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord!
Fr. Anthony Cekada
For Bp. Dolan
