In honour of my dear deceased parents, William and Theresa Buckley of Maynard, MA both of whom were dear, dear friends and long-time, devoted parishoners of "Fr. Lou" at his beloved St. Casimir's parish in Maynard, which had an extremely devout and devoted Polish-Catholic faithful, I am writing this remembrance as their daughter on having learned the sad news of Fr. Lou's passing. Fr. Lou is best-remembered by those who knew him well as a TRUE priest, one of the most devout, Holy, and truly pious priests to have ever been ordained in our Catholic Faith; his annual October Novena to his beloved St. Therese, The Little Flower, was as much a hallmark of his life as priest as was the annual St. Casimir's Church Picnic, which was legendary for its "mouth-watering galumpkis" as Fr. Lou himself often said. Fr. Lou had an intensely devout, deep devotion to The Blessed Mother, who I pray welcomed him directly into Heaven upon his passing yesterday with Her Open Arms and Her Smiling Face so that he could join in the company of God's Holy Elect, including I pray, my dear mother and father. And now that "every tear" has been wiped away for all Eternity, truly, may God Bless His Angels and His Saints, including Father Louis Bilicky.
