I have just read this breaking news on The Traditional Latin Mass Society of San Francisco:
“We have received the sad news that this morning (July 8, 2016), Fr. Peter Carota, is no longer with us. Please pray for the repose of the soul of this great priest. We will post funeral details when it becomes available.”
This is indeed very sad news. Fr Peter Carota had been suffering from a long, mysterious illness that caused him much suffering, and an inability to either eat or drink. This good and holy priest, strong promoter of the Traditional Latin Mass and traditional Catholic piety, will be sadly missed by many, not only those from his parish who loved him dearly, but from the thousands who drew strength, hope and comfort from the wonderful articles he published daily on his blog, Traditional Catholoc Priest. In the past we often re-blogged some of his excellent posts on CP&S. (A friend of his had been keeping the blog running once Father became too ill to continue.)
Please pray for the repose of the soul of this holy priest, that through our prayers we may help him on his final journey home to Heaven.
