RIP Canon Robert Offerle
He was the real thing: a Missal man who was thrown out of Namibia in the 1960s for opposing apartheid (after the example of Trevor Huddleston). He ended up supplying at a Continuing parish in Florida.
O GOD who didst cause thy servant Robert to enjoy the dignity of a Priest in the apostolic Priesthood, grant, we beseech thee, that he may evermore be joined unto the fellowship of the same. Through Jesus Christ, thy Son, our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
Jesu, mercy; Mary, pray.
