Prayer for a New Bishop

Thank you for your support and prayers for me during this time of transition.

Please join me in praying for a new Chief Shepherd.  Let us ask God our Heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit to guide Pope Francis as he discerns who will serve as the eighth bishop of the Diocese of Dallas.

For your convenience, we offer a prayer card in a printable pdf:

English (8 per page)
Spanish (8 per page)
English & Spanish (4 per page)

Please feel free to print prayer cards for your parishioners and I encourage you to pray as a community for this important intention.

Prayer for a New Bishop

ALMIGHTY GOD, Eternal shepherd and guide. In your love for us, grant to the Catholic Diocese of Dallas 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.
