  • Ms Paula Haigh, Catholic author and scholar of theology, philosophy and the empirical sciences related to cosmology and evolution, passed away on October 22, 2015.



    Réquiem aetérnam dona ea, Dómine, et lux perpétua lúceat ea.
    "If I could only make the faithful sing the Kyrie, the Gloria, the Credo, the Sanctus and the Agnus Dei ... that would be to me the finest triumph sacred music could have, for it is in really taking part in the liturgy that the faithful will preserve their devotion. I would take the Tantum ...

  • I've read some of her work. She was very intelligent and a strong defender of the faith.

    Rest in peace, Ms. Haigh.

    The good ones are falling like autumn leaves.  Who's going to pick up the torch?

    Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her.  
    May her soul and all the souls of the Faithful Departed, rest in peace.  Amen.   :pray:

  • Additional information from Patrick McCarthy who spoke frequently with Miss Haigh during Solange Hertz's lengthy illness:

    I know a few personal items about Miss Paula Haigh which might be of interest to fellow Catholics.  Although she and Mrs. Solange Hertz never met in person, they viewed each other as sisters in Christ.  They kept up their friendship through the years by letters and phone conversations.  When Mrs. Hertz had to go into assisted living, they maintained contact – by cell-phone; largely one-way because of Mrs. Hertz’s speech impediment.  When Mrs. Hertz was no longer capable of even that, I kept Miss Haigh abreast of her dear friend’s medical condition, including news of Mrs. Hertz’s death earlier this month.

    What little I know of Miss Haigh’s biography suggests a veritable pilgrimage to eternal Jerusalem.  Her parents were not Catholic and her early life was somewhat chaotic but, as the "Gloria" says, God is present to all “men of good will.”  Most emphatically, Miss Haigh was one of those.  

    These good Catholic women died exactly three weeks apart: October 3rd and October 21st.  May they now have each other’s company in the eternal light of the Blessed Trinity.
