Two friends inform me that Fr. Matthew Kelty of Gethsemani Abbey, Kentucky died today. He was 95. He persevered in the monastery 51 years. Blessed is he who dies in the Lord. May the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace.
Since he clings to me in love, I will free him;
protect him for he knows my name.
When he calls I shall answer: 'I am with you.'
I will save him in distress and give him glory.
With length of life I will content him;
I shall let him see my saving power.
H/T: Thank you Michael and Jeron.
