Back in August, I had the great honor of going out to Roma, Texas to speak at Our Lady of Refuge parish (a story I tell here). I had a wonderful time, not least because I had the great honor to meet a fine young priest named Fr. Jim Erving.
Today comes the sad news that Fr. Jim has died.
Father, grant Fr. Jim eternal light and rest through Christ our Lord. Mother Mary, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.
