Prayer for Our New Bishop:

“Let us pray, Almighty God, Eternal shepherd and guide, in your love for us, grant to the Catholic Diocese of Saginaw a shepherd who will guide us to be Christ’s heart of mercy, voice of hope, and hands of justice. Help him to fill our hearts and minds 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. Amen.”
