Former pastor of St. Patrick's Church dies - Manteca Bulletin

Monday, July 25, 2016

Traditional Latin Mass.His health continued on a downward spiral. He spent the last few months at a private home in Escalon where he was receiving full-time care. A few weeks ago, following his wish, the feeding tube that has been keeping him alive the last few months was removed. Following that development, during the Sunday Masses including the 6:30 a.m. Sunday Latin Mass at St. Patrick’s which he started five years before his sabbatical, Pastor Jeff Wilson who succeeded him to the post kept the congregation up to date on Father Carota’s condition and asked everyone to pray for him.Death of a devout priestWriting on Fr. Carota’s blog soon after his death, Father Nix shed some light on how the devout priest died without mincing words.“There is no flowery terminology to say this next sentence: Fr. Peter Carota starved to death today. This past year, I would frequently check in with him, and it was always the same story without any complaint: He could not eat. His body simply could not assimilate food. The saints often live a redemptive suffering that is reflective of the century in which they live and die. Did he die “with” the 3 million children who starve to death every year in the world? Or was his physical starvation a reflection and reparation for the spiritual starvation of Catholics and non-Christians across the globe? I don’t know. Perhaps it was a just a long, painful death in reparation for his own sins. This is why the Mass I offer in honor of Our Lady tomorrow will be for the repose of the soul of Fr. Peter Carota, and I ask you to join your prayers to mine.  I will lift up all your prayers on the patten of the Traditional offertory tomorrow.“But if comparison to the lives of the saints means anything, then this priest of God finished the course; he kept the faith and he died on a Friday like His Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, the only high priest. May He rest in Our Lady’s arms the next day, a Saturday of Our Lady whom he loved as purely as any man I’ve met.”Fr. Nix wrote that he and Fr. Carota met “two years ago when we were both wandering the desert in semi-exile from our respective dioceses (literally the Sedona desert....).”15 years as priest, 10 yearsas pastor of St. Patrick’sOrdained on May 24, 1997, Father Carota was assistant pastor, first at St. George’s in Stockton, followed by St. June in Ceres, and Our Lady of Fatima in Modesto. St. Patrick’s in Ripon was his first assignment as pastor. He took over his pastoral post on Oct. 3, 2002 succeeding Father Mark Wagner who was named pastor of St. Joseph’s Parish in Modesto after Father Joseph Illo left. After the departure of Father Carota, several priests alternately presided over the Latin Mass at St. Patrick’s. Among them was Father Wagner who continues to take time off from his parish in Modesto to officiate at the early Sunday Mass in Ripon.During his 10 years as pastor at St. Patrick’s, Father Carota, who was a successful re
