death of Nelson Mandela represents the death of one of the great
figures of world history and a loss to humankind. Considered 'the great
reconciler' and 'an icon of forgiveness,' Nelson Mandela was a living
example of ‘walking the way of the cross.’
the Father of South Africa, proved to all that cycles of violence and
hatred could be rejected for the higher human values of truth and
reconciliation. He once said, ‘I learned that courage was not the
absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who
does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.’ His
courage and his capacity to triumph over fear and hatred should inspire
us all. His capacity to forgive should be an example to each of us that
no one is beyond our forgiveness.
I call upon the people of the Diocese of New Jersey to give thanks for
the life and witness of God’s servant Nelson Mandela and to include
remembrances of him in the Prayers of the People this weekend.
his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace.
