Father Pablo Straub - Rest In Peace

EWTN favorite and personality Father Pablo Straub of the Redemptorists order has passed on to the Lord after 44 years of priestly ministry.  He died in Cancun, Mexico

Father Straub was born in May 1932 in East Rockaway, Long Island.  He would enter the Redemptorist order at a young age and would be ordained in 1958. His first work as a priest was missionary ministry.  He worked in Puerto Rico for 20 years, the Philippines, Peru and Mexico for another 20 years.

As part of this mission work, he also gave missions in the United States and produced many programs for EWTN.  He is known for wearing his habit and carrying a large crucifix often cradling it as if it were an infant. He was a prolific speaker and knew how to get the attention of the people with his tone and body language.

Father Straub lit up the flame of faith in lapsed Catholics as well as active Catholics.  He has also
brought in new converts thanks to the grace of God who used him to preach the good news of Christ Jesus.

Father will truly be missed.  May he rest in God's peace.
