Prior to his death, Fr. Hager wrote the following: “Here, at long last, I found peace as a contemplative in solitude, where very often I reflect on the words of St. Augustine” – “Thou hast made us for Thyself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee.”
“Bring me home, dear Lord that I may rest in peace and prayer for my loved ones to follow.”
