In Piam Memoriam: Fr. Franck Marie Quoëx, STD...



This is the new plaque which was just yesterday blessed in honor of Fr. Quoëx who passed away in 2007. Born in Savoy, this good and holy priest worked in Italy, France, Germany and Switzerland where he passed away in Lausanne when he was just thirty-nine.
In 1992 Fr. Quoëx was ordained near Florence on the Feast of St. John the Baptist and in 2002 he celebrated with friends the tenth anniversary of his ordination with a very special Low Mass in a private chapel in the hills north of Rome (near Lake Bracciano). In this same chapel, this commemorative plaque now hangs in his pious memory.
Fr. Quoëx was a Doctor of Sacred Theology having graduated from Rome's Dominian University with a 2001 thesis entitled "External Acts of Worship in the History of Salvation According to Saint Thomas Aquinas." Fr. Quoëx was considered by most of us to have been the greatest living liturgist on the continent and he taught sacred liturgy for some years at the FSSP seminary in Bavaria.
May his memory be eternal.

Shouldn't it be IN HAC CAPPELLA instead of IN HAC CAPELLAM? There seems to be a double mistake in the last word; it should be in the ablative case and it should have a double P.

Nevertheless, this is a most worthy token of reverence and esteem. He deserves it.

Very nice. If only they could have got the Latin right...

De Latina queri nolo, potius quaerere volo quomodo pronuntiari debeat sacerdotis huius nomen?

Thank you for letting us share in the commemoration of this holy priest. We will not see his like again for many years to come.
