bpskleppingerwrightweb.jpg This picture of Archbishop Kleppinger with Bp. Wright (on the occasion of the College of Bishops Meeting,October 2005) was taken the day when Bp. Michael Wright preached during the mass on the Prodigal Son and announcing he had returned. It was homecoming and the legacy of reconciliation he brought between HCCAR and HCCWR and restored communion. Bp. Wright affirmed this restoration in the following words: In 2005 however the trend was reversed when full communion was established once more between the HCC-WR and the HCC-AR.
The following year Bp.Wright attended the Ecumenical Congress together with Bp. Samuel Banzana of South Africa and confirmed the existing communion. Our deep sympathies go to Bp. Samuel Banzana, Bp.Cruz Blanco and all the clergy and the people of HCCWR.
In the words of Archbishop Kleppinger, “We have lost a great shepherd on earth and gained an intercessor in heaven in the company of the Angels and Saints”. And may this our prayer be for the dear departed:In communion with the blessed saints and aided by cherubim and seraphim, thrones and dominions, principalities and powers, virtues, archangels and angels – all the armies of the Heavenly Host: May his rest be this day in peace, and his dwelling place in the Paradise of God.
