Today is the anniversary of the death (on July 3, 2014) of “Therese’s bishop,” Guy Gaucher, O.C.D  Therese led him to Carmel, and he served her not only as her Carmelite brother but also as auxiliary bishop of the diocese of Bayeux and Lisieux, in which capacity he served many pilgrims to Lisieux, and as a great scholar of St. Therese.  In thanksgiving for all he gave to Therese and to us, I gather here a look at the announcements of his death and funeral; several tributes; and the homily from his funeral Mass.

 The Paris province of the Discalced Carmelite friars announced the death of their brother, Guy Gaucher.
