Today we pray for Bishop Odore Gendron, Bishop Emeritus of the Diocese of Manchester.
He was ordained to the priesthood in 1947 and ordained to the episcopate in 1975. He retired as Bishop of the Diocese in 1990.
Lord Jesus, King eternal, grant this your servant a retirement filled with service to your Gospel, drawing always new souls to you who are the Good News. Mother Mary, watch over him and lead him ever closer to your Son.
