Viewers of the videos have described them as “encouraging” and “informative.”

Another viewer called the videos “meaningful, thought-provoking, needed and appreciated moments of reflection.”
Bishop Golka began recording weekly videos while serving as Rector of St. Mary’s Cathedral in the Diocese of Grand Island, Nebraska, several years before the COVID-19 pandemic caused many parishes and dioceses to start recording Masses for the faithful who could not attend church in person.
