et lux perpetua luceat ei.

Requiescat in pace.

One of the good ones.

Dona ei requiem sempiternam, Domine.

Perhaps a saint someday.
He certainly fought for the true Faith and the true Mass...the Tridentine Latin Mass.

One of his masterpieces: http://www.statveritas.com.ar/Liturgia/CardStickler_Misa-01.htm

A genuine son of Dom Bosco.

"The results of the reform are judged by many today to be devastating. This was the merit of Cardinals Ottaviani and Bacci to discover very quickly that the radical modification of the rites resulted in a fundamental change of doctrine.

Fortunately, the Latin Roman Mass so-called of St Pius V has never been forbidden: priests and faithful can always draw from the source of the Lex orandi (law of praying) and in this way live faithfully the Lex credendi (law of believing)".

Alphons Cardinal Stickler (Nov, 27/04)

Let us thank God for this great Prince of the Church, a true apostle and spiritual father.

"His lord said to him: Well done, good and faithful servant, because thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will place thee over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord."

Matt 25: 21

Cardinal Stickler, pray for us! We still cannot get the old Mass in our diocese, even with SP!

Be our powerful advocate, for you see more clearly the evils which surrounds us.

May the souls of the faithful departed, rest in peace!

Glad he lived to see the Latin Mass return to the mainstream of the church

Will he have a traditional Requiem?

May the Lord recieve our beloved Cardinal in glory. May the life and sacrifices of Cardinal Stickler be a fragrant smell of obedience and humility to the Triune God.

He sent me a note once ... a very kind and considerate prince of the Church. Profoundly different than a certain clerical "loser" in Brazil.

I wonder what the Cardinal would have said about the New document, or Doctrinal Note, on Evangelization.

I am very concerned that such an important document does not once unequivocally identify Jesus Christ with God, but is always using other relative ascriptions, such as "God and Jesus Christ".

I am also concerned that it does not explain, but seems to deny, the infallible Catholic Dogmat, Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus, presenting the Church as a better, more pleasent, fuller means of salvation.

Also, perhaps I did not notice, but where is the mention of the pre-existing problem which requires evangelization as a sine qua non: Original Sin?

The document seems very full of phenomenology....
