I just learned that Fr Peter Gilquist died late last night after a fight with cancer. I didn’t know Fr Peter personally. I’ve read a book by him, heard him speak and seen him on video. Nonetheless I am saddened that Fr Peter is no longer with us physically. He joins the saints in heaven, and I’m sure his prayers on our behalf will be amply answered. Fr Peter has been influential in my journey to Orthodoxy, and I want to thank him for all of his work in this life.
