I received news this afternoon that another of the priests in the Diocese of Birmingham has died. This is the fourth in six months (three were diocesan, one was a religious). All were in active ministry up until shortly before their passing.
Please pray for the repose of their souls.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
And pray for vocations in the Diocese of Birmingham in Alabama!

PS – This was the priest who was gravely ill, for whom I asked you to pray. Thank you for your prayers!
