One for Pensacola-Tallahassee?

11 MARCH 2012. In recent weeks, these shores have seen two of the stateside sees receive new bishops in Baker, Oregon and Galveston-Houston. This leaves the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee as the longest standing vacancy stateside, and considering the recent attention to these United States by the Holy Father in naming bishops, let us re-double our prayer efforts for a good and holy bishop here in our little corner of the world in lower Alabama-south Georgia.


Heavenly Father, 
You have blessed our diocese time and again 
with good and holy bishops 
who have led us ever closer to you. 
Aware of your profound love for us, 
we ask you to bless us once again. 
Send us a good and holy man 
to become our next bishop. 
Inspire us, the clergy, religious and the laity 
of the diocese to work generously with him 
so that we might grow together in your love 
and continue the good work you have begun in us 
for the sake of all. 
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, 
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, 
one God forever and ever.
