A Prayer for Bishop Michael Sheridan


O God, who chose your servant Bishop Michael J. Sheridan

from among your Priests,

and endowed him with pontifical dignity

in the apostolic priesthood,

grant, we pray,

that he may also be admitted to their company for ever.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

God for ever and ever.
