Statement from Cardinal DiNardo on President George H.W. Bush

December 3, 2018

“The world, our country and the City of Houston recently lost a courageous man, dedicated leader and selfless public servant, President George H.W. Bush. I join the faithful of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston in offering prayers and condolences to the entire Bush family. President Bush’s career in the public eye – from the Lone Star State to the global stage – was marked by incredible statesmanship and honor. His strong faith in God, devotion to his wife of 73 years, the late First Lady Barbara Bush, and his boundless love for the covenant of family served as a model for all to follow. The City of Houston was very proud to call him one of our own and one of our brightest points of light. We will forever be grateful for his presence and commitment to our community and to the people of Houston.”

“May the glory of the Risen Lord transform our sorrow into serenity.”
