Ad finem fidelis: faithful to the end...
This faithful priest, a man of outstanding merit, born in 1967 and ordained in 1992, passed away peacefully on January 2, 2007.
His name is Abbé Franck-Marie Quoëx. A Requiem Mass will be offered in Rome for his soul this coming week (date yet to be announced). All are welcome.
When I think of Fr. Quoëx, I think of an authentic liturgist who knew and loved the Roman Rite. When I think of the others in the same field, these Latin words come to my mind: caetera desunt (the rest are lacking).
Fr. Quoëx was at the vanguard/forefront of his field of study. He left many of us with the endowment of his knowledge and zeal for our liturgical patrimony. Be it unsaid that he was the greatest living liturgist of our era. May he rest in peace. Bene decessit.
