Saturday, December 31, 2022

Bishop James A. Tamayo and the faithful of the Diocese of Laredo join the Church universal in mourning the passing of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. We extend our heartfelt sympathies to His Holiness Pope Francis and join him in offering our prayers for the repose of the soul of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. As a faithful servant of God, Pope Benedict dedicated his life and ministry as Pope in the service of inviting all people to an encounter with God through the Church and its ministries.

May his soul and the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
