  • Can we please get date and time for the funeral so travel arrangements can be made? As irony would have it Fr. Collins is the only one that would regularly give me this type of information. So I am at a bit of a loss here...This is M G if anyone knows me please reply.

  • 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

  • Just got this in my inbox:

    Dear friends of ISOC:
     
    Many of you may recall that good Father Joseph Collins celebrated Mass for us at various ISOC conferences.  I'm sad to say that Father is experiencing a very serious medical problem.
     
    He has an enlarged liver, possible tumor and will have a CAT scan today. He will also be receiving the Last Rites this weekend.
     
    Would you in all Charity, please pray for Father Collins.
     
    Thank you.
     
    In the loving Hearts of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph,
     
    Judith Sharpe
    What is ISOC organization anyway?  Is it sedevacantist?  The reason why I ask is because I highly doubt Father would have said mass unacum the Novus Ordo pope.

    ISOC produced the documentary "What We Have Lost... and the Road to Restoration" back in the 90's, which most trads have seen at some point.



    They have a website where they post interviews from a wide array of trad Catholics, both sedes and non-sedes.  I don't think they focus too much on the disputes and politics of the "loose confederation of warring tribes" that is traditional Catholicism.

    OK, thank you.

  • So ... what arrangements is this executor making instead of the original plan?  Who is this person and why did Father Collins choose him/her?

  • Presumably he's still going to have some funeral Mass, right?  Just perhaps somewhere else.  One would hope Father Collins did not choose so poorly as to be subjecting himself to cremation or some other horror.

    The executor is one of Fr. Collins closest and dearest friends.  The only change to the funeral arrangements that I am aware of is that it is being held at a later date so the executor of his will can be there along with other people who loved Father dearly who want to sing for his requiem Mass.
    I am a bit taken aback by Fr. Cekeda's words against him for doing this.  I have know Fr. Collins a long time and good music and singing for Mass meant a lot to him.  One reason he selected his executor as he did was because he and Father had a great understanding in such matters.  I wish people woukdn't be so quick to judge.  😔

    Fr Cekada is the one who has told everyone that there is a problem.  Another example of his divisive and contentious personality.
