God, eternal shepherd, you tend your Church in many ways and rule us with love. 
You have chosen your servant, Thomas Deenihan, to be a shepherd of your flock. 
Give him a spirit of courage and right judgment, a spirit of knowledge and love.

By governing with fidelity those entrusted to his care, 
May he build your Church as a sign of salvation for the world.  Amen

 Bishop Deenihan 2
