An incredible priest I met through a retreat program (via the Archdiocese of Atlanta) passed away yesterday.
I met Fr. Linus in my 20's & he had a huge, positive impact on my outlook on faith, friendship, & love. When I bought my 1st house in a pretty shady neighborhood (that I loved anyway), he came over & blessed it. That blessing saw me through 10-ish years of solo home ownership & beyond.
He had a wonderful sense of humor & always had a super-mischievous look in his eyes - always - he was quick to impart a smile, joke, laughter, & kind word to everyone. He was beloved by many, many throughout Atlanta & I was so lucky to know him. He made priests human to me in the best possible way.
+Fr. Linus will be greatly missed & always loved.
