new auxiliary Bishops for our Archdiocese. One I have met and know personally. One I know by reputation. One is new to me. I pray for them all.
The work of a Bishop is simply difficult beyond words. The hours are long. The needs are many. The intrigue and politics never stop. Opinions and reality never seem to match. And that’s just life INSIDE the church. What things, what passions, what struggles must be within the heart of the Bishop themselves as they approach and serve in this office?
May God preserve them and may we never forget to lift them up in prayer.
