Cardinal George: A great loss to the faithful…

 

 

(CUSA) – Statement from Human Life International on the passing of Cardinal Francis George, the Emeritus Archbishop of Chicago:

 

 

FR. PETER WEST—

 

The priests and staff of Human Life International mourn the loss of Cardinal Francis George today.

 

Cardinal George was a faithful shepherd and courageous teacher who devoted his life to the service of Our Lord and his Church.

 

In sickness and health, he served with dignity, grace, intelligence and humility.

 

He was a powerful voice on behalf of the unborn and other vulnerable persons in our society, especially those who suffered disabilities. He will be greatly missed.

 

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May the souls of Cardinal George and all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
