The Cartusian Father, Dom Isidoro Maria Estudillo, has died on April 29, writes CartusiaLover.Wordpress.com (May 29).
• He was one of the last four monks of Santa Maria di Scala Coeli Monastery in Evora, Portugal, who moved to Miraflores in 2019.
• Dom Isidoro (Francisco) was born in Carmona, near Seville, on 30th November 1926.
• He entered the Carthusian monastery of Aula Dei in October 1943 at the age of 17.
• He was a novice master for more than 50 years and wrote many poems, including the Song of Life.
• He loved his garden and used to say, “If the flowers are so beautiful, what will heaven be like?”.
• To Our Lady, he wrote: "My death will be sweet, if I imitate your life; I can ascend to God, trusting that it was only by loving you that I was able to live".
• A cerebral haemorrhage gradually weakened him, but he always remained lucid and even managed to concelebrate. #newsNochezggxx

R.I.P. --God bless this good and holy Carthusian priest, wonderful saintly man. I love the Carthusian Order and its history. What a tremendous legacy they have made in the Church. I know it is difficult in these terrible Vatican II/Pope Francis times, but I hope the Carthusian Orders remains strong, and a place of Grace and Holiness and Catholic tradition which is fostered and loved, not reviled and discarded as other ancient and once great Orders have done....like the Trappists and Camaldolese.
God bless this good priest for his holy life and good example as a priest and faithful Carthusian monk.
I hope your Order is slowly growing again, Dom Isidoro. I know you will be praying for it from Heaven!
