ST. LOUIS – Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson, Archbishop of St. Louis, released the following statement regarding the death of Missouri Supreme Court Chief Justice Richard Teitelman:

We join our fellow Missourians in mourning the passing of Missouri Supreme Court Chief Justice Richard Teitelman. We are especially grateful for his years of dedicated attendance at our annual Red Mass at which members of the judiciary and the legal community gather at the beginning of each judicial term to pray for the guidance and inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

I ask the faithful of the Archdiocese of St. Louis, and all people of good will, to join me in praying for the repose of the soul of Justice Richard Teitelman. The family and friends of Judge Teitelman are in our thoughts and prayers.
