Pope presides at Mass for deceased bishops

Catholic World News - November 04, 2010

Pope Benedict XVI presided on November 4 at the annual Mass for bishops who have died during the past year. "We wish to remember these our venerable brothers as zealous pastors whose ministry was always inscribed in that eschatological horizon,” the Pope said in his homily. He praised their work as pastors and their witness “as Christians, animated by profound faith and by the living desire to conform ourselves to Jesus.” The Vatican schedules a Mass each November for recently deceased prelates. With a number of cardinals concelebrating the Eucharistic liturgy, the Pope in his homily made special mention of the cardinals who have died in the past year: Peter Seiichi Shirayanagi, Cahal Daly, Armand Razafindratandra, Tomas Spidlik, Paul Mayer, and Luigi Poggi.
