In Memoriam

Yesterday the Father Superior announced with great sadness that Fr. Mark Violette had passed into eternal life on March 31 after battling stringent cases of Leukemia. Everything that could be done was done and we appreciate the many prayers offered in his behalf. Now we have a true friend of Tradition and a holy priest to intercede for us in Heaven. Eternal Rest grant unto him, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace, Amen.

  1. In paradisum deducant te Angeli; in tuo adventu suscipiant te martyres, et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Ierusalem. Chorus angelorum te suscipiat, et cum Lazaro quondam paupere æternam habeas requiem.

  2. O God, Thou didst raise Thy servant, Mark,
    to the sacred priesthood of Jesus Christ,
    according to the Order of Melchisedech,
    giving him the sublime power
    to offer the Eternal Sacrifice,
    to bring the Body and Blood of Thy Son Jesus Christ down upon the altar,
    and to absolve the sins of men in Thine own Holy Name.
    We beseech Thee to reward his faithfulness
    and to forget his faults,
    admitting him speedily into Thy Holy Presence,
    there to enjoy forever the recompense of his labours.
    This we ask through Jesus Christ Thy Son, our Lord. Amen.

  3. Thank you dear friends, for posting these beautiful prayers for Fr. Violette. My only wish is that the Bishop of Colorado Springs would take down the Declaration against the Servants of the Holy Family that’s been on the diocesan website ( now for almost 2 yrs, grant faculties to the Servants for celebration of the sacraments according to the liturgical books in effect in 1962, and cease this war against dedicated priests who seek only to defend the Traditional doctrines and dogmas of Holy Mother Church. Well, that may be a bit much for newchurch prelates who have drunk of the Vatican II Kool-Aid but at least we know we have an intercessor in Heaven. God bless you all.

  4. Requiem aeternam dona ei Domine et lux perpetua luceat ei. Requiescat in pace. Amen. +

  5. Prayers for the soul of a holy priest.

  6. Following a Solemn Requiem Mass at the Servants’ Chapel, the body of Fr. Mark Violette was laid to rest in Evergreen Cemetery, Colorado Springs. We ask God to reward this holy priest for his lifetime of service to the cause of Holy Church. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace, Amen.
