Publish Date: February 8, 2017

Please pray for Bishop Edward J. Burns as he prepares for his installation as the eighth bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Dallas

Lord our God,
you have chosen your servant Edward
to be a shepherd of your flock
in the tradition of the Apostles.

Give him a spirit of courage and right judgement,
a spirit of knowledge and love.

By governing with fidelity
those entrusted to his care
may he build your Church
as a sign of salvation for the world.

We ask this through
our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit
one God, forever and ever

Amen.
