Warsaw, Poland, Jun 17, 2019 / 09:25 am America/Denver (CNA).
A young Polish priest who was ordained last month following a terminal cancer diagnosis has died, his community announced Monday.
Fr. Michal Los, FDP, died June 17 in the morning, the Congregation of the Orionine Fathers said in a Facebook post.
“We believe that he met with the Risen Christ whom he so desperately wanted to serve as a priest. Thank you for all your prayers and support,” the congregation said.
On May 24, Los was ordained a priest in his Warsaw hospital bed.
He had been diagnosed with cancer about a month prior. At the time of his ordination, he was in critical condition.
