“We remember with gratitude the witness of the deceased Cardinals and Bishops, given in fidelity to God’s will. We pray for them and we strive to follow their example…”
This was at the heart of Pope Francis’ homily during the Holy Mass he presided over in memory of cardinals and bishops who passed away during 2020. The Eucharistic Celebration took place at 11 o’clock this morning, at the Altar of the Chair in St. Peter’s Basilica.
Recalling the good deeds of this deceased prelates, Francis recalled how during their lives, they had the confidence–whether they served near or far from home–to aim to please God in all things.
