A Funeral for a Friend – The Homily for Deacon Robert Jergovic by Deacon James Keating – Discerning Hearts

The celebration of the life of Deacon Robert Jergovic took place on a cool November Monday morning…the Church was packed, the tears flowed, and one of the best homilies that I’ve ever heard was given by his close friend Deacon James Keating.  Poignant, compelling, a heartbreakenly beautiful tribute to a life which shined with the presence of Christ.  “For whom shall I offer my suffering” was one of the last questions Deacon Rob asked his friend.  The first act of a dying man was to think of another…and then another astonishment occurred.  Don’t miss the rest of the story.
We pray for his wife, Lisa, and for his children…and we pray for Rob…who now prays for us at the throne of God.  Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

  1. Praise be God the Father;Jesus and Mary!..By the grace of God I found your website..I was so happy..
    working long hours it is a challenge to pray when it is late and I tend to doze off..clasping my Rosary and starting over…and end up praying St Michael’s 9 salutations prayer and the 7 Sorrows of the Blessed Mother at mid nite most of the time….I love the background chant and instrumental music….
    With your website;I can focus and listen and pray with my headphones without a wandering thought…God bless you for your work!..Are you in the future going to add the 12 year prayer given by Our Lord to St Bridget…about His 7 Sorrows and pains?..
    I have nothing to contribute at this time…but will do it in the future..do you have an address? I do not like using the credit card….
    Thanks again for all you do and God Bless!….
