The occasional, often ill-considered thoughts of a Roman Catholic permanent deacon who is ever grateful to God for his existence. Despite the strangeness we encounter in this life, all the suffering we witness and endure, being is good, so good I am sometimes unable to contain my joy. Deo gratias!

Good News: Bishop Thomas Wenski Named as Miami's Archbishop

Our bishop here in central Florida, Bishop Thomas Wenski of the Diocese of Orlando, has just announced that he has been named the new Archbishop of Miami by Pope Benedict XVI. (Click here to view his video announcement.) Bishop Wenski has been a good shepherd of our diocese and we will miss him; but at the same time we wish him well as he takes on the challenges of this large and diverse archdiocese. Keep him in your prayers and pray too for the man who will follow in his footsteps here in the Diocese of Orlando.

The above photo shows my current bishop, Bishop Thomas Wenski, with the bishop who ordained me when he was Bishop of Fall River, Cardinal Sean O'Malley, now Archbishop of Boston.
