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.
