AUSTIN — Today (Sunday), at the request of Senator Lucio, the Texas Senate will adjourn in memory of Father Armand Mathew, who passed away this weekend in Brownsville.
"Father Mathew was kind beyond description and a man of conviction with an unparalleled moral compass. He preached love, compassion, and doing whatever possible to make our community better. He was a celebrated leader in our community, a beacon of hope, justice, and faith," Senator Lucio told his colleagues on the Senator floor today. "Texas, and indeed the world, is a better place because he graced it."
