Pray For A New Bishop

Bishop Michael has written
“Mindful that the time for my own retirement will be approaching, please join me in praying for a new Bishop for this Diocese. Let us ask God our Heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit to guide Pope Francis as he discerns who will serve as the next Bishop of the Diocese of Lancaster.”

Almighty God,
Eternal shepherd and guide.
In your love for us,
grant to the Catholic Diocese of Lancaster
a shepherd who will lead us to be Christ’s heart of mercy,
voice of hope, and hands of justice.
Help him to fill our minds and hearts with the truth of the Gospel,
the power of the sacraments,
and the desire to build up your Holy Church.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
