31 March 2021,
was called to God
Dom Gérard de MARTEL
Benedictine monk of the priory of St. Benedict of Palendriai
at the age of 80,
including 55 years of monastic profession
and 49 years of priesthood.
After 35 years in Solesmes,
our brother was part of the group of founders of the priory of Palendriai, in Lithuania.
Deeply attached to this country whose language and culture he knew perfectly,
he was much appreciated as a spiritual father.
The disease took him away in a few months.
We recommend him to your prayers.
Father Abbot and the Community of Solesmes
