Fr. Peter Mary Rookey Funeral-Our Lady of Sorrows 9-15-14

Published on Sep 16, 2014
Fr. Peter Mary Rookey, who served the Lord for over 73 years as a holy priest of the Servite Order, passed away peacefully in his sleep on 9-10-14. Thousands, all around the world, were healed by Jesus through his holy hands. Here is a video of a portion of his funeral Mass at Our Lady of Sorrows Basilica in Chicago held on 9-15-14. It was the actual feast day of Our Lady of Sorrows who, along with Jesus, he dedicated his life to serving. His favorite priest, Fr. David Simonetti, gives a beautiful homily, and his very close friend, Irish singer David Parkes, sings Shubert's Ave Maria in a heartfeld tribute to his beloved Fr. Rookey. We praise the Lord for touching the lives of millions through this faithful priest who we all knew was a living saint. Rest in peace, dearest Fr. Peter.
