Fr Eldred Leslie RIP

I was horrified this morning to read of the murder of Fr Eldred Leslie in South Africa. I first met Fr Leslie in 1983, when he was just crossing over into the Pius X Society (those were pre-consecration days), and when I was just off to the seminary. He was an extraordinarily kind, unstrident, defender of the traditional faith. May he rest in peace.

Thank you, Father, for this post.

I remember this good and holy man from his time in England. He was what I would call a true priest.

God rest his soul.
