Angels, Recieve His Soul

Brother Dietrich Reinhart, OSB entered eternal life. A benedictine monk, Brother Dietrich was the president of Saint John's University (Collegeville, MN) since 1992 - he was half-way through his third six-year term as president of the university.

Saint John's University currently has three alumni studying at the Saint Paul Seminary in formation for the priesthood.

This author was privileged to have known Brother Dietrich during my years at Saint John's (Fall 2002 through Spring 2006). He was a very caring man, supportive of the students, and called all to prayer and increased faith.

I will miss Brother Dietrich dearly; he strongly encouraged me during my undergraduate years to follow God's call.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. Amen.

Saints of God, come to his aid. Come to meet him, angels of the Lord. Recieve his soul and present him to God; present this soul to God, the Most High.

The brothers of Saint John's Abbey will receive the body at 7 pm on 05 January with solemn Evening Prayer; the Mass of Christian Burial will be on 06 January at 3 pm in the Saint John's Abbey Church.
