+ James Kelsey: Servant of God, now resting from his labors

Rt. Rev. James A. Kelsey

MARQUETTE — Rt. Rev. James A. Kelsey, age 51, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Northern Michigan, died Sunday afternoon from injuries sustained in an automobile accident. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Canale-Tonella Funeral Home, which will release a complete obituary notice later.

Thoughts from Bishop Marc Andrus here.

Give rest, O our Savior, with the Just, to Thy servants, and set them in Thy courts, as it is written. And overlook in Thy goodness their sins, voluntary and involuntary, and all they committed knowingly and unknowingly, O Lover of men.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen. Christ our God, Who didst shine on the world from the Virgin, trough her making us children of light, have mercy on us.

Well said Fr Peter. Bishop Marc's comments are moving. Thank you too Rob - for the first time I had sound on and here I am listening to "How shall I sing that majesty" to that wonderful tune "Coe Fen"! How suitable!
