The following statement from Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry is in tribute to President George Herbert Walker Bush.

With a grateful nation, and many around the world, we of the Episcopal Church give thanks to God, the source of life and love, for the life, the public and private witness of President George Herbert Walker Bush.

Through his enduring commitment to public service and his steadfast devotion to his family, he lived the way of Jesus through a life shaped by faith, hope and, above all, love. Through his unswerving service to our country and to the human community around the globe, he embodied the noblest ideals of his faith and his country.

President Bush will be an enduring reminder that virtues like kindness, gentleness and goodness are among the things that truly endure, and that chart the way to our living as the human family of God.

In him we have beheld a great soul, and been reminded of the hope that, by God’s grace, we can live likewise.

May his soul and the souls of all the departed rest in peace and rise in glory. Amen.

La siguiente declaración del obispo primado de la Iglesia Episcopal Michael Curry es un tributo al presidente George Herbert Walker Bush.

Con una nación agradecida, y muchas personas de todo el mundo, nosotros los de la Iglesia Episcopal le damos gracias a Dios, fuente de vida y amor, por la vida, y el testimonio público y privado, del presidente George Herbert Walker Bush.

A través de su perdurable dedicación al servicio público y de su incondicional devoción a su familia, él vivió el camino de Jesús a lo largo de una vida moldeada en la fe, la esperanza y, sobre todo, en el amor. Mediante su inquebrantable servicio a nuestro país y a la comunidad humana en todo el planeta, él encarnó los más nobles ideales de su fe y de su patria.

El presidente Bush será un perenne recordatorio de que virtudes tales como la generosidad, la amabilidad y la bondad están entre las cosas que realmente perduran, y que trazan el camino de nuestra existencia como la familia humana de Dios.

En él hemos contemplado un alma grande, que nos ha recordado la esperanza, por la gracia de Dios, de poder vivir de igual manera.

Que su alma y las almas de todos los difuntos descansen en paz y resuciten en gloria. Amén.
