Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

    Father Dick Rieman died last year, but his holy advice continues to be cherished.

    “First, you love this God of ours. Then … the others, the others, the others.” — Father Dick Rieman, Nov. 8, 1925-Dec. 2, 2019

    “Hey, Duke!”

    That’s how he used to greet me when he saw me.

    He was full of expressions like that from years gone by. He was a very simple soul who could speak very directly.

    Father Dick Rieman passed away on Dec. 2, 2019, after 94 years on this earth. But he left everyone who knew him with a fund of simple sayings that we can never forget.

    I will never forget what he said about marriage: “It requires a lot of hanging in there” — simple but true.

    He was chaplain at Montrose School in Medfield, Massachusetts, for 40 years, and I’m sure the women who came through there as young ladies never forgot what he told them. He would tell them in a homily at Holy Mass that “God made you to love you. He made you to love you.” Or he would tell the girls to “crawl into Our Lady’s lap.”
