The Church Triumphant on Earth has lost another courageous soul full of evangelical zeal today. Bob Lord along with his wife Penny Lord who passed away in 2014 (see: http://www.sacerdotus.com/2014/01/penny-lord-rest-in-peace.html) were known for their work in teaching Catholics about the faith, saints and other facets of Christian life. Bob has now joined his wife. He has passed on to the Lord’s presence today, according to the Bob and Penny Lord website and EWTN.
Bob and Penny Lord are known for their programs on EWTN as well as books, conferences and retreats. I have several of their books which have aided me in my own journey.
Both will be missed and are role models for laypeople in the Church. Bob and Penny Lord would always end the program with “we love you.” Well I think I speak for all Catholics who have enjoyed their ministry by returning the saying, “we love you back.”
Bob even stems from my hometown The Bronx and went to Cardinal Hayes near the old Yankee Stadium which was demolished.
Rest in peace, Bob and Penny Lord. Eternal rest grant to them O’ Lord and may perpetual light shine upon them.
