We are praying for him.
Wow. According to Wikipedia, he was ordained 25 August 1935!
May God grant him many happy years. May God give health, years, and grace to a most devoted servant.
Would that we all be so blessed to serve Him thus.
God bless him! Ad multos annos!
ad multos annos !
This reminds me of another priest I know: Fr. Vladimir Kozina who first celebrated the Latin Mass in California after Vatican II. He’s been a priest for a long time too, and I know how you probably feel about Cardinal Mayer. I sincerely hope they may both have several more years serving the Holy Mother Church.
Cardinal Mayer was the first Cardinal I ever met. The second was Joseph Ratzinger, who was standing next to him. Cardinal Mayer kindly loaned me his pen so I could get then Cardinal Ratzinger’s autograph.
Wow, 73 years as a priest. That’s gotta be come kind of record in this day and age. Happy Birthday, indeed.
Ad multos annos!
He looks like a very kind, warmhearted man. Not long ago I ran across an interview Fr. Z. conducted with him several years ago. He sounds like he has been a longtime warrior for the authentic implementation of the fruits of the Second Vatican Council, especially regarding the liturgy. Ad multos et gloriousque annos!
Correction: Ad multos gloriousque annos!
God continue to bless this great good man !
Happy Birthday to His Emminence
Ad multos gloriousque annos!
I suspect that I shan’t meet him until Heaven, if I manage to get there, but I’d certainly like to before then!
God grant him many years in health and happiness!
Congratulations to the Cardinal – I am glad he lived to see Summorum Pontificum
Happy birthday to His Eminence!
Was he ordained in Germany, or Italy?
Mario-how cool that must have been, to meet both Cardinal Mayer and Cardinal Ratzinger at the same time!
I too am glad that he has lived to see Summorum Pontificium!
