Fr. Matt Robinson, OP died in Irving, TX last night. He fell last week and broke his hip. Our provincial reports that he died in hospice care with the prior and sub-prior of his convent singing the "Salve."
Fr. Matt is a Pro-Life icon in Texas. He encouraged Norma McCorvey ("Roe" in Roe v. Wade) into the Church. Served as chaplain for several pro-life groups. Operated a website.
At nearly 98 y.o., Matt could rattle off Aquinas' Five Ways in Latin; tell you why science and faith can never be in conflict; fix your alarm clock while hearing your confession; and prepare, deliver, and defend a eight-week series of homilies on why the Mass is a true sacrifice!
He was a dynamo! And he will be sorely, sorely missed. . .
