Join me in asking our merciful Father to grant eternal rest for Fr. Arthur Wehr. His sudden passing is heartbreaking. He was a generous brother and kind companion in the ministry. May he now know the embrace of the Good Shepherd whom he faithfully served as a member of the Society of Jesus. I offer the condolences of all the bishops, clergy, and faithful of the Diocese of Sacramento to the members of Fr. Art's family and all the Jesuit community.  

May the soul of Fr. Art and all the faithful departed rest in peace.

With good reason, many people look to St. Francis for inspiration when considering our share with creation in giving praise to God. His Canticle of the Sun is recognized by many people well beyond the Catholic community. St. Francis’s poem, believed to have been written in 1225, is presumed to be the first work of literature by a known author composed in the Italian language. It has been translated into many languages and inspired expressions in various art forms: hymns, songs, movies, plays, novels and operas, to name a few.
