Father Basil Rechenberg O.S.B.

At 11:40 P.M. on November 1, 2014, just as All Saints' Day was to yield to All Souls' Day, Father Basil Rechenberg, O.S.B. of Saint Benedict Abbey, Still River, Massachusetts, died peacefully after a long struggle with Parkinson's disease, with Father Anthony Kloss, O.S.B. at his bedside.

I personally knew Fr. Basil. He was a model Benedictine monk and great Catholic witness for me while I knew him.

Thank-you for that witness Fr. Basil. You had a lasting effect on me and my brother Mark.

Requiescat In Pace
