Fr. Eric died in faith. If he could comment on the verdict, whatever that will be, he would express it through his favorite hymn.
Take, Lord, receive all my liberty,
My memory, understanding, my entire will.
Give me only Your love and Your grace, that's enough for me.Take, Lord, receive all I have and possess.
Your love and Your grace, are enough for me.
You have given all to me, now I return it.
Take, Lord, receive, all is Yours now.
Dispose of it, wholly according to Your will
