Requiem, Fr. Macayan, SJ

I wrote about Fr. Macayan almost a year ago. Last Sunday, May 8, 2005, at 6 am, our Lord called his servant back.

It seems almost appropriate that Fr. Macayan passed away on Mother's Day; perhaps Mama Mary was sent to call him back.

His wake will be at the Ateneo High School Chapel until tomorrow, and daily masses will be celebrated at 8 pm.

On Thursday, there will be a Mass at the Church of the Gesu at around 8, I think, and then, he will be buried with his Jesuit brothers at Sacred Heart Novitiate.

Fr. Macayan, in his long tour of duty in the High School, touched many a life, including mine. I am glad he helped prepare me for the work that I now do.

Requiem in pace, Fr. Macayan.
