One of the elder statesmen of the International Federation Una Voce (FIUV), Helmut Rückriegel, died early on 25th of January, 2016.
A great champion of tradition over many decades, he was a man of urbanity and charm. I hope there will be a proper obituary of him in due course. In the meantime, please pray for him.
His Funeral Mass will take place in Bonn on Friday 5th of February.
I took this photo of him at the FIUV General Assembly, in Rome, in 2013. Anyone who would like to reproduce it, please do so (though I expect there are better ones).
