Brother Isidoro (1939-2017), A Good Friend

Mary and I were traveling in the British Isles when we received word that Father Isidoro Vicente had passed away. I have known Isidoro for some years as one of the Dominican Brothers who lived with my very good friend Father Richard Patrick. I have always found Brother Isidoro to be diligent at prayer, supportive of the Dominican community, faithful in study, and exacting in his preaching. Anytime I would ask a question Brother Isidoro would always seem to have a very definitive answer were there was not much room to wiggle. During the last several months of my time Richard, Brother Isidoro would prepare lunch for us, making sure that everything would be staged to insure a pleasant meal. I'll miss Isidoro as always added a bit of flare to morning prayer, making sure things started on time and we were on the correct reading of the day. His spirit will be missed and I sincerely pray that he is now with the other Dominican brothers in heaven. He deserves it!
