“The Spirit of God, my Lord, is upon me. The Lord has anointed me.” (Isaiah 61.1)
The Lord has met our beloved fellow Father Pierre Godenir, O.S.B., Monk of Sint-Andries Abbey Zevenkerken. He was born in Forest on 27 June 1920, professed his vows on 15 January 1942, and was ordanied a priest on 3 August 1947. He served as a missionary in Congo and died at the abbey on 16 October 2018.
The Vigil was held in the abbey church on 21 October 2018, with the solemn Mass of Christian Burial and subsequent burial in the abbey cemetery on 22 October 2018.
May the Lord welcome him into His eternal peace. We commend Father Pierre to the prayers of the Benedictine Confederation.
