One More, One Less

A seminarian named Matty Molnar died yesterday in a car crash. I'm sorry I didn't read his blog before, because his last post was a pretty good set of last words.

It's always particularly sad to lose someone online, because you don't have the usual comfort of going to the funeral or the grave. It's even more discouraging to lose bright young seminarians who are on fire for the Church, because we need them more than ever. But a real community, a real parish is a place where people live and die. We are sad because we are separated from them here; but in reality, we are still in communion with them, surrounded by a cloud of witnesses and angels, through our oneness in Christ. I have no doubt that this gentleman Matty Molnar will be doing us even more good from where he is now.
