Please pray for the soul of Bishop Richard Seminack, who fell asleep in the Lord yesterday after a long decline in health. He had been the bishop of the Ukrainian Catholic Church in the central United States for thirteen years.
We mortals were made from out of the dust of the earth, and to the earth we
shall return again as you commanded when you made us; saying:
‘Earth you are and to the earth you shall return.’
All we mortals make our journey to this end, making our funeral dirge the chant:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
