The Prayer of Cardinal Newman
May he support us all the day long
Till the shades lengthen
And the evening comes
And the busy world is hushed
And the fever of life is over
And our work is done.
Then, in his mercy,
May he grant us a safe lodging
And a holy rest,
And peace at last.

I will always cherish the memory of your wonderful voice leading us in a decade of the Rosary at my Grandmother's Funeral. You have been such a wonderful presence in the lives of everyone in my Family. I will be honored to see you in Heaven one day.
Much Love,
Tony

I will always love you and cherish the wonderful Irish voice that will forever be etched in my heart and soul. The world has lost a truly great man, Priest and father to us all. I am heartbroken.

You have to express more your opinion to attract more readers, because just a video or plain text without any personal approach is not that valuable. But it is just form my point of view
