Saint Charbel Makhlouf did not die during Holy Mass, but went into a seizure at the consecration. That was on December 16th, 1898 and he died on Christmas Eve 1898.

He was buried in the ground without a coffin. There was considerable rain during the first 40 or so days of his burial.

There were dazzling lights seen above his grave during this time, so it was decided to dig up the saint-to-be.

He was found to be incorrupt, though his clothes had rotted away (he was buried in dirt (which turned to mud).

There were numerous miracles associated with his incorruptibility in terms of special substances that oozed from his body from time to time.

So this saint was went into a seizure at the consecration of the Holy Eucharist...

This may be a very Holy Priest who died...

If we see what we see, it is because we stand on the shoulders of giants (often quiet and relatively anonymous).

He died doing what he believed was his destiny! That, my friends, can be the only true definition of “a calling”. Others I know, would say ‘He went out doing what he loved’, or, ‘he went out at the top of his game’. To quote my old NYC friends, ‘We should be so lucky!’

He is an example of never giving up, no?

For those who knew him, I extend my condolensces.

Blessed Be!

Apocalypse 14:13. In those days:I heard a voice from Heaven, saying to me: Write, blessed are the dead who die in the Lord, from henceforth now, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors, for their works follow them.

4 Esdras 2:34-35. Eternal rest give to them, O Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon them. Psalm 111:7. The just shall be in everlasting remembrance; he shall not fear the evil hearing.

Dies irae, dies illa
solvet saeclum in favilla:
teste David cum Sibylla.

Quantus tremor est futurus,
quando judex est venturus,
cuncta stricte discussurus!

Tuba mirum spargens sonum
per sepulcra regionum,
coget omnes ante thronum.

Mors stupebit et natura,
cum resurget creatura,
judicanti responsura.

Liber scriptus proferetur,
in quo totum continetur,
unde mundus judicetur.

Judex ergo cum sedebit,
quidquid latet apparebit:
nil inultum remanebit.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus?
Quem patronum rogaturus,
cum vix justus sit securus?

Rex tremendae majestatis,
qui salvandos salvas gratis,
salva me fons pietatis.

Recordare, Jesu pie,
quod sum causa tuae viae:
ne me perdas illa die.

Quaerens me, sedisti lassus:
redemisti Crucem passus:
tantus labor non sit cassus.

Juste judex ultionis,
donum fac remissionis
ante diem rationis.

Ingemisco, tamquam reus:
culpa rubet vultus meus:
supplicanti parce, Deus.

Qui Mariam absolvisti,
et latronem exaudisti,
mihi quoque spem dedisti.

Preces meae non sunt dignae:
sed tu bonus fac benigne,
ne perenni cremer igne.

Inter oves locum praesta,
et ab haedis me sequestra,
statuens in parte dextra.

Confutatis maledictis,
flammis acribus addictis:
voca me cum benedictis.

Oro supplex et acclinis,
cor contritum quasi cinis:
gere curam mei finis.

Lacrimosa dies illa,
qua resurget ex favilla
judicandus homo reus.

Huic ergo parce, Deus:
pie Jesu Domine,
dona eis requiem. Amen.
