Father Gregory Hesse, RIP
Catholic Family News has just received sad news that Father Gregory Hesse died last night, January 25. All we know so far is that his death was brought on by complications due to diabetes, and he received last rites from a priest of the Society of St. Pius X. We will update this page when we know more.
Father Greogry Hesse, S.T.D., J.C.D. was ordained in 1981 in St. Peter's Basilica. He held doctorates in both Thomistic theology and Canon Law. From 1986-88 he served as Secretery to Cardinal Stickler at the Vatican. Since 1991, he worked in Austria, Germany and the United States giving lectures and producing theological articles that appeared in Catholic Family News, The Fatima Crusader and other journals.
He was a contributor to the book The Devil's Final Battle and appeared in the 2004 Fatima documentary Heaven's Key to Peace. An outspoken critic of Vatican II and the post-conciliar revolution, Father Hesse is remembered as a strong voice for the Latin Tridentine Mass and the Traditional Catholic Faith.
Please remember to pray for the soul of Father Hesse in your Masses, rosaries and prayers. Requiescant in pace.
