In the Narthex
No man is deader than a dead priest.
His celibacy means that when he dies he leaves behind no wife or children. No grandchildren will remember him. In his retirement he loses touch with the parishioners he once served (who now have a new priest to think of) and if he was a prelate his authority may have separated him a little even from his fellow priests.
Remember Your Prelates Who Have Spoken the Word of God Unto You.
