We are orphans no longer

Today is the 1st Anniversary of His Excellency Bishop Paul J. Swain. Upon receiving the news, an older priest of our diocese, near death and confined to his bed, said: "We are orphans no longer."

I found a quote from an Italian Cardinal and thought it would be a good prayer for Bishop Swain.

May Bishop Paul, successor to the Apostles, 8th bishop of Sioux Falls live out this high priestly vocation "with the warmth and the certainty of the faith, the concreteness of projects and initiatives, the capacity to respond to the issues of the time, not with surrender and accommodation, but by drawing upon the unalienable patrimony of the faith."

Amen.
