Msgr. Leo McFadden has gone on to his eternal reward. According to Kathy, the former pastor of Our Lady of the Snows parish had been Regina Pacis' staunchest supporter. She adds:
I have no idea, at this point, what (if anything) will be asked of Regina Pacis regarding his funeral Mass. I don’t even know where it will be. Clearly, his preference would be Our Lady of the Snows but there is bound to be a large gathering and the church simply may not be big enough.When she knows, I'll know, and when I know, you'll know. (ETA: His funeral was at St. Rose of Lima on Friday, Feb. 15.)
In the meantime, Requiem aeternam dona ei, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat ei. Requiescat in pace. Amen.
