Lincoln Bishop Conley on Cardinal George…


(CUSA) – Many words of condolence and admiration  are pouring out regarding the death of Cardinal George.


We are particularly fond of his work and writing here at CatholicismUSA and will publish as many comments as we can.


Below are the remarks of the Bishop of Lincoln, Nebraska, James Conley. —Ed.



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.
