Please pray for Bishop who died today


#1

Please pray with me for the repose of the soul of Bishop Thomas Tschoepe, former bishop of Dallas who passed away today.

I heard this on the news a half hour ago but haven’t been able to find any news links yet. He was born 12/17/15, ordained to the priesthood 5/30/43. He was ordained as Bishop of San Angelo in 1966 and installed as Bishop of Dallas in 1969. After his retirement in 1990, he served at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Waxahachie, Texas.

I ask the Lord to flood his soul with His merciful love.
And I ask the Lord to ensure that all the good he did and tried to do, will flourish.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

Father God, we pray for the repose of the soul of Your servant, Bishop Tschoepe. May his work on earth for the glory of Your Name continue through the faithful of his diocese, and from there, to the rest of the world. We ask that You will grant him his reward and bless the bishop who will succeed him to carry on guiding the Diocese of Dallas. We ask this through Christ our Lord, who lives with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

Our Father, who art in Heaven,

Thy kingdom come,

Give us this day our daily bread,

but deliver us from evil.
