Please pray for Bishop Michael Evans

Prayers please for Bishop Michael Evans the Bishop of the Diocese of East Anglia, England, UK.

Bishop Michael has advanced cancer and has only weeks to live. He has prepared his living in the shadow of death, (his own words), eccepting it with faith as a gift of Gods grace.

Thank you all… :highprayer:

Dear St. Joseph, intercede on behalf of Bishop Evans. Grant him a peaceful death and the rewards of eternity. We ask all these prayers through the intercession of our Blessed Mother, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

I read about him in the Catholic Herald the other day. He is giving fine example as a bishop and father of his flock. May God Bless him in the days ahead and may He console the members of Bishop Evans diocese

Praying from today’s Liturgy of the Hours:

Show your love for the dying
and let them see your salvation with their own eyes.
– Lord, give blessings to your people.


I am praying.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, we fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, our Mother. To you do we come, before you we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word incarnate, despise not our petitions but, in your mercy, hear and answer us. Amen.

Praying for Bishop Michael Evans …

qui es in caelis,
sanctificetur nomen tuum.
Adveniat regnum tuum.
Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
Et ne nos inducas in tentationem,
sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee.
Blessed art Thou amongst women, and blessed
is the fruit of Thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary, mother
of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour
of our death.

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us form the fires of hell, lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of your mercy. Amen.

Dear Father, grant the bishop a happy and peaceful death. I offer three Our Father’s and give thanks for his life and service to your people. In Christ’s name. Amen.
