Fr. Austin Smith a Pretiosissimo Sanguine

Dear Fr. General, 
Earlier today Fr. Nicholas telephoned me the sad news that Fr. Austin CP had died peacefully in the Care Home in Liverpool where he has been living. Some of his close friends were with him when he went to the Lord, completing as Austin would say, his, “journeying into God.” 
I pray you will keep Austin, and all of us who mourn his loss, in your prayers. As yet there are no finalised arrangements for his funeral.

Yours in Christ Crucified, 

 Fr. John Sherrington cp
