Francis Cardinal George was a holy, clear-thinking and courageous bishop, and a role model for bishops across the United States. He was also a humble and generous disciple of Jesus Christ, and a faithful son of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Today the Church in the United States lost a tremendous churchman and a holy shepherd. Join me in praying that Cardinal George’s soul will soon be welcomed into the company of heaven. May he rest in peace, and when he enters paradise, may he intercede for us all.
