I have some good memories of this hardy Salesian brother - tough as nails and gentle of heart...and have had the wonderful privilege of experiencing both. Here is one of his typical witty quips: "When I was young and joined religious life it was 'night prayers' and 'lights out' - Unfortunately today for some it is 'light prayers' and 'nights out'!!!"

We will miss you Br. Ludvik. May the Master always have you by his side to keep the heavenly banquet well-replenished. May you continue to bring mirth and good cheer to His Kingdom...Hurry now it's time to get things ready for the big "All Saint's banquet"
