Prayers, Thanks, and Congratulations to Bishop Colin

 

OBQ - Greetings for Bishop Colin as Bishop of Kidapawan“My prayers, thanks, and congratulations to Bishop Colin.  His appointment as the new bishop of Kidapawan by our Holy Father, Pope Francis, is the culmination of 10 years of faithful service as my Auxiliary Bishop.  To him I express my heartfelt gratitude.  Bishop Colin faces new pastoral challenges as Bishop of Kidapawan.  The pastoral context of Kidapawan is quite different from Cotabato.   Pope Francis has described how a bishop could follow Jesus the Good Shepherd. The bishop has sometimes to lead by walking in front of the flock.  Sometimes he has to lead by walking behind the flock.  And sometimes he has to lead by walking among his flock.  Let us then pray for Bishop Colin.  May he be a true shepherd of God’s people in Kidapawan after the image of Jesus the Good Shepherd.  Once again my prayers, thanks, and congratulations to Bishop Colin. May our Blessed Mother be always his companion.”
