Tribute to Father Michael Eivers
The loss of Fr Michael is the loss of a father, pastor and great prophet. We think of his loss as the grain of wheat that dies to give an abundance of fruit that remains. His death is the seal of a life of mortification. In receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, he accepted to live his Baptism by dying with Christ for the New Life in the Spirit. And when he met the home cells of evangelization he was the first one to leave the pastoral methods in which he was formed to give his life for this method that it may transform the lives of many Catholics as it is transforming the lives of our Christian Brethren, leading to a new vision of the Catholic Parish as an evangelized parish.
We firmly believe together with you that our Merciful Father will receive the priestly sacrifice of Fr Michael together with his continuous intercession for you and for us that the spirit of renewal and new evangelization may grow first and foremost in you dear country.
May the Lord turn our tears into gladness as you witness a new wave of implantation and multiplication of cells and transformation of more parishes in your diocese and in all the dioceses of America through the intercession of our dear Fr Michael Eivers that will ever accompany us.
With love and prayers
