I’m on my way to New Orleans for the annual Spring meeting of the United States Catholic Bishops. As I travel, I find myself praying and reflecting on the many great things that have been going on here in the Archdiocese in recent weeks.
This Sunday we celebrate the great feast of Pentecost, and the end of the Easter season.
I love these weeks of the Easter season as we await the Ascension of our Lord and the sending of his Holy Spirit at Pentecost.
This week, our Holy Father Pope Francis makes his first trip to the Holy Land.
May is Mary’s month and the Rosary is Mary’s prayer.
It is a simple prayer, one that many of us learned as children. And as we grow older, the Rosary grows with us.
As we do every year on the fourth Sunday of Easter, this Sunday we join the universal Church in praying for vocations to the priesthood and the religious and consecrated life.
This past weekend, we joined the universal Church in offering thanks and praise to God for our two new saints — the great 20th century popes, St. John XXIII and St. John Paul II.
I hope you all had a beautiful and peaceful Easter with your family and loved ones!
We have a vocation to blessedness. This is what the Beatitudes of Jesus teach us.
This Sunday we begin Holy Week. Our Lenten journey has led us to the final hours of Our Lord’s life, in which he suffered torture and death on the Cross.
