Darío Card. Castrillón Hoyos, former Pres. of the Pont. Comm. “Ecclesia Dei” – RIP

A couple days ago, I received word that His Eminence Darío Card. Castrillón Hoyos was entering into his final earthly hours.  Card. Castrillón had been Prefect of the Congregation for the Clergy and then President of the Pontifical Commission “Ecclesia Dei” from 2000-2009.  He died last night.  He was 88 years old.

All those who love the Roman Church’s Tradition might pray for His Eminence today and in the days to come, especially with the Rosary and at Holy Mass, that He will, if not already, be swiftly brought into the bliss of the Beatific Vision. He was a solid leader of the PCED and did a great deal to solidify the gains that we have made over the last couple of decades.

Here is a video of Card. Castrillón on a DVD made by the FSSP.

Please share!
