The Funeral Mass of His Eminence Cardinal Murphy-O’Connor, 10th Archbishop of Westminster and Cardinal Priest of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva, on September 13, 2017. The retired archbishop of Westminster died peacefully at age 85.

The Tablet reported that Cardinal Murphy-O’Connor issued a final message through Bishop Richard Moth of Arundel and Brighton a short time before he died, saying:

“At this time, the words I pray every night are never far from my thoughts: ‘Into your hands, Lord, I commend my spirit.’ Please tell them that I am at peace and have no fear of what is to come. … Above all, as I now commend myself to the loving mercy of God, I ask them all to pray for me as I remember and pray for them.”

Archbishop George Stack of Cardiff remembered the cardinal as “always full of compassion, seeking to find what was good in each person. His gentle humor put everyone at their ease in his company.” READ MORE
