“Pray that I may have the grace …”

For the second time this year, a former pastor of mine has been diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer. Fr Everett Hemann, a longtime friend, has begun a blog to keep friends and family informed.

Father Ev hired me in 2008, allowing a happy return to Iowa from Kansas City. Like my other deceased former pastor, Ev is deeply devoted to good liturgy, a careful and sensitive presider, a preacher of quality, and a parish pastor of much experience. This latter quality, I am convinced, is what sustains the Church more than any other activity in Holy Orders, even the papacy.
