+Fr. Ed Espiritu, SDB

We offered a funeral Mass this morning for the repose of the soul of Fr. Edgardo Espiritu, SDB. We learned the news of his passing away yesterday morning. He was 67 years old.

I took this photo when he was preached our recollection last December.

Fr. Mike emphasized that more than satisfying the letters of our constitutions in paying respect to our deceased confreres, we are all challenged to follow the example of Fr. Ed who grew in faith and blossomed in love.

Join us in praying for his eternal repose.


Article 54 of the SDB Constitutions reads

“...When the hour comes for a Salesian
to bring his consecrated life to its highest fulfillments,
his brothers help him to enter fully into Christ's paschal mystery.
Death for a Salesian is made bright by the hope of entering into the joy of the Lord.”
