R.I.P. Lawrence Auster

Lawrence Auster at View from the Right passed away this morning from the pancreatic cancer with which he has wrestled for years. See Laura Wood’s touching send-off here.

I know we’re all very busy with family, work, school, and Easter preparations, but please take a few minutes out of your day to pray for the repose of his soul.

  1. When I saw that headline my heart sunk. Lawrence Auster was a great man, deserving of all the prayers we can give. It put a smile on my face, though, to see he was received into the loving arms of Christ’s bride before his passing.

  2. I shed tears at the passing of this great man whom I never had the good fortune to meet in person. I have prayed for him often these past months, and will pray for him yet more.

    No one can fill his shoes, but perhaps we at the Orthosphere can step up to fill, in our own ways, the enormous gap he leaves behind.

  3. What will we do without him? I know that I can pray for his immortal soul (surely well-sped on his journey home). But I have no idea at all what on earth to do (on earth) without him. What do I do now? What do we do?

  4. Reblogged this on Resting in Apricity and commented:
    For those of us who never met the man and yet admired him greatly, this must be a very surreal moment. Let us keep in mind that he loved the things below through which the things above shone and will not cease to work instrumentally in preserving them. He has not left us behind. Rejoice!

    May God bless Lawrence Auster and grant Him life in abundance.

  6. Auster challenged liberalism on all of its conceited assumptions about the nature of man and society; in his speeches and writing, he spoke a truth no mainstream conservative would dare even think, for losing the electoral support of the ever-leftward drifting “centre”; he refused to buckle to the progressive trends of postmodern anti-society; but never fell into the dark and nebulous quagmire of bitterness and hate. May his soul rest in peace and may we follow in his example.” (Lawrence Auster: Passes from this World, unto the Next)

  7. Rest In Peace Lawrence Auster. You were a great influence on people’s lives, a wonderful mentor and a friend. A beacon of light in the middle of darkness.
