|Lost one of the best in Fr. William Horath|
Letter to the Editor:
If Billy Joel was correct in saying, “Only the good die young,” Father William Horath would have been gone long ago. This past week, we lost one of the best.Big-time kudos to all involved in any aspect of Father’s wake, funeral mass and luncheon. It was heartwarming to see the overwhelming community support. The outpouring of priests, deacons, fire department and emergency medical services personnel was absolutely astonishing. It was touching in so many ways.
While his parishioners, visitors and friends will never be able to enjoy that perfect smile when presented Holy Communion, we know he is smiling at us from heaven. Any of us who listened to his homilies about anointing of the sick know he asked for absolution and the Apostolic Blessing to insure a direct flight upstairs.
John 15:13 says, “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friend.” Father Horath may have laid down, but his love for all of us will be never ending.
Until we meet again, may God hold him in the palm of his hand.
