Three reasons to admire my new bishop


A bit presumptuous of me, I know. But, while respecting one's bishop is always required, admiration isn't a given.


1) He met and said Mass for the Crossroads pro-life walkers when they came through Utah. (Public support for the Pro-life cause beyond minimal lip-service--a good thing.)


2) Every priest in my diocese was sent a copy of Pope Benedict's Jesus of Nazareth. (I have received books from the Ordinary before, but this is the first one I was excited to get.)


3) One of my parishioners encountered His Excellency hearing confessions at the Cathedral. (Not too busy to hear confessions!)
