Dear Friends of the Mission of Our Lady of the Angels,

On Friday, April 17, we heard the sad news of the death of our beloved Cardinal Francis George.  As we mourn his passing, let us turn to our Loving God and pray for the repose of his soul.   Cardinal George gave himself tirelessly in Service to Almighty God and His Church as a dedicated Religious, Priest, Bishop and Cardinal.  His love for the Church and for the poor was the inspiration that led Cardinal George to desire a Catholic Presence here at Our Lady of the Angels so that the poor could have their spiritual and material needs tended to by the Catholic Church. As busy as he was, Cardinal George always made time to visit and offer his encouragement and support to the work of the Mission here at Our Lady of The Angels. 

Our Lord Jesus Christ told us that He has gone to prepare a place for us in His Father's house in the Kingdom of Heaven.  Our hope is that our dear friend Cardinal George has been welcomed into the Kingdom of God and is enjoying the fullness of love and peace in the presence of the Lord in the company of all the angels and saints!

Please join us in praying for the repose of the soul of our friend and constant supporter, Cardinal George.  May his soul and the souls of all of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.

Sincerely,  

Fr. Bob and the Franciscans of the Eucharist of Chicago
