Fr. Eldred Leslie R.I.P.

Please pray for the respose of the soul of Fr. Eldred Leslie (83).

Fr. Leslie was murdered in his home in Pietermaritizburg.

Despite having being robbed several times and having his house broken into at least 14 times in the last ten years he continued to assist all those who came to his door. The Natal Witness reports that he "gave street children and destitute people food and even paid school fees for some of the children."

It appears that he opened the door to someone and was murdered.

Fr. Leslie was well known for his support of the Traditional Latin Mass and pro-life causes.

He was pastor of the independent chapel of Our Lady and St. Michael.
