Pope Francis Marks 25 Years as a Bishop
2017-06-27 (Vatican Radio) Pope Francis celebrated Mass on Tuesday morning in the Pauline Chapel of the Apostolic Palace, together with the members of the College of Cardinals present in the city, in order to mark the 25th jubilee of his ordination to the episcopacy.
In remarks following the Readings of the Day, the first of which was taken from the Book of Genesis, recounting the episode in which Abraham and Lot part ways, “When Abraham was called, he was more or less our age,” Pope Francis said to the elder statesmen of the Church. “He was going to retire, to go into retirement for some rest – he started out at that age. An old man,” the Pope continued, “with the weight of old age, old age that brings pain, illness – but [God said to him], as if he were a young man, ‘Get up, go, go! As if he were a scout: go! Look and hope!” Read more here.

You are cordially invited to attend the ordination of Deacons Jeremy Bock, Beau Braun, and Steven Langenbrunner to the priesthood on Friday, June 9, at 4 p.m. at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Rosary in Duluth. If you have never been to an ordination before, please come! I still encounter many lifelong Catholics who have never been to an ordination. It is an extraordinary liturgical experience. Consider this an open invitation to attend.
The evening before the ordination, June 8, 2017, we will be hosting a holy hour for the ordinandi at the Cathedral from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m., to which you are also invited.Read More

May 2017 is an important month, because it marks the 100th anniversary of Our Lady’s appearance to the three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal. I had every intention to write on the subject of Our Lady’s appearance this month, but as I sit at my computer writing this column, it is Easter Monday, so the resurrection is vivid in my brain right now, and since Mary appeared in Fatima for six months, I will have other opportunities to explore this important occurrence.
It is not possible to improve upon Christ’s resurrection and his appearances on Easter Sunday and the 40 days that followed, but that does not mean that I wouldn’t have done it differently. What do I mean by that? Well, there are two things I would have wanted to do differently had I been the resurrected Christ. (I know this sounds heretical, but bear with me.)Read More
