Relying on the word of God and holding firmly to hope, which like a sure and steadfast anchor reaches to the heavens (cf. Heb 6:18-20), the Bishop stands in the midst of the Church as a vigilant sentinel, a courageous prophet, a credible witness and a faithful servant of Christ, our hope and glory (cf. Col 1:27), thanks to whom 'death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying nor pain anymore' (cf. Rev 21:4)." (Pastores gregis, #3)
