Full text of Bishop O’Connell’s last recorded homily

Homily — World Day of the Sick

Auxiliary Bishop David O’Connell

Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels

February 11, 2023

Our Blessed Mother said, “Tell them I love them.”

She also says, “Tell them there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for them.” For all of you. She loves you all very, very much. Like a loving mother, gazing upon all of you who come because of illness, or the stress in your life — or also those who are here who do so much to help those who are ill, like our Knights and Ladies of Malta.

But Our Blessed Mother, she — her heart is filled with love for you. I have a special love in my heart for Our Lady of Lourdes because, in the few times that I’ve been there, you can really feel her love so present there.
