Bishop Burbidge responds to the death of Cardinal Francis George of Chicago


Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I ask that you join me in praying for the repose of the soul of Cardinal Francis George, Archbishop Emeritus of Chicago, who died this afternoon following a lengthy illness. Cardinal George faithfully served as Archbishop of Chicago for 17 years and additionally served the Church in our country as President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.  

Kindly remember Cardinal George in your intentions, especially at Mass, as well as his family and all who mourn his death.

May Our Risen Lord Jesus, the Good Shepherd, guide his servant Cardinal George unto the fullness of life and grant him eternal peace.  

Sincerely in Christ,

Bishop Burbidge
