Dear Anna, Lisa, Brother Benet, Donald,

We will be praying for your beloved Guido tomorrow; I offered my Mass for him last Friday and will offer my Mass for him tomorrow as well. He was a dear man; it was a privilege and blessing for me to get to know him at least a little bit. May he rest in peace, and may the Lord bring all of you his peace and consolation.
In the Lord, Abbot Thomas
