Month: May 2012

Our Newest Bishop, Most Reverend Liam Carey

Today I arrived back in Cheyenne from Bend, Oregon.  I made a quick trip to be present as one of my classmates was installed yesterday as the 7th Bishop of Baker, Oregon.  Bishop Carey is a great addition to the Episcopacy of our Church, and we are honored and blessed at his election and ordination as a Successor of the Apostles.  He is humble, and as his remarks at the end of the ordination Mass indicate, he is also very gracious and eloquent.  The People of God of Baker will be well-served by this faithful […]

Rev. Louis Shea; Ordination Homily

Yesterday, the Church of the Diocese of Cheyenne gathered once again in our Cathedral for the ordination of a new priest. Rev. Louis Shea along with family and friends provided a great follow-up to Tuesday’s celebration in which we ordained sixteen permanent deacons. Best of luck, Fr. Louis!   Priesthood Ordination, May 16, 2012 Cathedral, Cheyenne  As we gather today, so quickly upon the heels of yesterday’s celebration in this very space, in which we ordained sixteen permanent deacons, we cannot help but be aware of God’s goodness and the work and inspiration of the […]

Stellar Day for Cheyenne

I’m not sure what the history is for deaconate ordinations, but we surely hit a ‘hight water’ mark today as we ordained sixteen men for service as permanent deacons! I’m sure photos will follow.  The homily is below. This class of men for some time now have developed quite a reputation for their great quality.  The many professors and others who have worked with them in their years of formation always have great and positive things to say on their behalf.  I must say, I am in complete agreement.  The Church of the Diocese of […]

St. Meinrad Commencement & Homily

I have the privilege of celebrating this year’s commencement Masses at St. Meinrad Archabbey and Seminary with the graduates of their seminary and lay ecclesial degree programs. The Mass this evening was for the seminary students, and the morning will be with the lay degree program members. This mosaic as you will read in the homily below is not from St. Meinrad, but rather from San Clemente in Rome.  It seems an appropriate tool for insight into the readings this week from John’s Gospel, Chapter 15. St. Meinrad Commencement Masses May 11 – 12  Thank you […]

Thursday Night Life; May Edition

Admittedly, my camera skills need work. Sorry this one is a bit blurry, but I do not ask people to pose, so the movement is not welcome by my camera. This month, our Young Adults gathered at Holy Trinity in Cheyenne.  Following adoration, the group moved across the parking lot to a fire pit to enjoy the outdoor weather and some fellowship…of course, pizza just arrived as well! For the Scripture reflection, we chose this past Sunday’s Gospel from John (15): “I am the vine you are the branches.  Remain in me as I remain […]

Pope Benedict XVI

As promised, here is a photo of an audience with Pope Benedict XVI on Saturday, May 5. This was taken immediately after the Region XIII Bishops received the Holy Father’s Fourth Discourse to the American Bishops. His topic this time was on the Catholic Identity of our Catholic Schools. Audience with Pope Benedict XVI. Photo with permission of L’Osservatore Romano. With this photo, reporting from the 2012 ad limina apostolorum comes to an official close.  As mentioned earlier, the visit was very grace-filled.  It is always a unique grace to be in the presence of the Successor of […]

Ad Limina; Day Seven & Conclusion

And so ends my first ad limina apostolorum. Much to my surprise and delight, these many meetings were not so much another experience of administration, but they truly focused on the pastoral dimension of our Apostolic Ministry as Bishops. Almost every one of the Dicastery meetings gave us a reflection and challenge on how our ministry is to be a proclamation of Jesus Christ to those we serve and all we encounter.  We have been inspired and strengthened to help our people and our culture encounter Christ and assimilate the faith into every aspect of […]
