A Tribute to Fr. Paul Archambault

As some of you may be aware, a young priest in my diocese of Springfield, MA took his own life last week, just hours after going about his duties - ministering to the sick at a local hospital where he served as a chaplain. The Bishop said his funeral Mass earlier this week. This reflection is poignant as much for what it says about Fr. Paul as for what it says about depression and suicide. A Tribute to Fr. Paul Archambault

Thank you, Patrice, for sharing this. Although I didn't know the priest, this was such a wonderful explanation of the trials that can go on in a person's mind and life, and I'm glad I had the opportunity to read it.
