Father Gilbert J. Burke, O.S.B.

Benedictine Father Gilbert J. Burke, O.S.B.
March 30, 1935 - June 17, 2012

     I mentioned in my post of June 18th of the passing of Father Gilbert Burke.  His funeral Mass was held this morning at the Archabbey Basilica, attended by many friends and acquaintances, and his brother monks and many diocesan clergy that knew and respected him.

     From the Remembrance of the Dead from Eucharistic Prayer III we read:

"Remember your servant, monk and priest, Gilbert,
whom you have called from this world to yourself.
Grant that he who was united with your Son
in a death like his,
may also be one with him in his Resurrection,
when from the earth he will raise up in the flesh
those who have died,
and transform our lowly body
after the pattern of his own glorious body."
