Msgr. Ralph Belluomini – RIP

In your kindness please pray for the repose of the soul of a friend of mine, Msgr. Ralph Belluomini who died recently.

He was a priest of the Diocese of Fresno, and, not a young man, he succumbed to cancer.

    Thank you for the post Father Z. “Fr. Ralph” was considered our family priest. As you said not a young man, but prior to his final trial was always on the go and was a 24/7/365 priest available for anyone and at any time. As you know from your time with him, he had integrated the Extraordinary, Ordianry, Spanish and Korean Masses in one parish by himself. every event at the mission was attended by members of all the parish communities. When he had the mission, he did all that and made hospital calls and home sick calls to his parishoners. He was a mans man and a priests priest. Old School and proud of it.

    Of course, Father. Please know also that I pray for priests, including always yourself, with deep focus every Tuesday and Thursday as I say my morning rosary. May God bless, guide and protect you all, and may you all meet together again in Heaven!
