Greetings brothers and sisters in Christ. In my last letter, I proposed that we might take time to better understand what happens at the Mass.

We do not simply “go” to Mass but rather we participate in an event of communion with our Lord. This event of communion has the power to change our very being. Today, I would like to look at how regular experience of the Sacrament of Penance (going to Confession) can help us better be prepared to receive our Lord and to let our Lord receive us.

I’m so sorry for your loss.”

The ultrasound technician offered me her condolences. I was thankful. At least she understood that I was in anguish over the miscarriage of my child one week prior. My doctor had simply stated that “nature will take its course.” Though I was nine weeks along in my pregnancy, my baby had stopped growing at just five weeks, six days old.

Saludos, hermanos y hermanas en Cristo. En mi última carta propuse que nos tomáramos un tiempo para comprender mejor lo que ocurre en la Misa.

No nos limitamos a “ir” a la Misa, sino que participamos en un acto de comunión con el Señor. Este acontecimiento de comunión tiene el poder de cambiar nuestro propio ser. Hoy quisiera analizar cómo la experiencia regular del Sacramento de la Reconciliación y Penitencia (ir a la confesión) puede ayudarnos a estar mejor preparados para recibir a nuestro Señor y dejar que nuestro Señor nos reciba.

Saludos, hermanos y hermanas en Cristo.  Me siento humilde y contento de ser llamado a servirles como obispo.  Gracias por la amable bienvenida y especialmente por su apoyo orante. 

Mi primera impresión de nuestra Diócesis de Colorado Springs es que Dios está obviamente obrando de muchas maneras.  Estoy agradecido por el ministerio de tantos sacerdotes, diáconos y religiosos dedicados.  Estoy quizás más impresionado por el testimonio y el servicio fiel de tantos laicos dedicados y dotados.  Por favor, sepan que los guardo a todos en mis oraciones diarias.  Honestamente, estoy impaciente de ver lo que Dios tiene reservado para nosotros.  Juntos podemos esperar y esperar que Dios cumpla los planes de Dios si solo confiamos y lo permitimos.

Greetings brothers and sisters in Christ. I am humbled and overjoyed to be called to serve with you as Bishop. Thank you for the kind welcome and especially for your prayerful support. My first impression of our Diocese of Colorado Springs is that God is clearly at work in many ways. I am grateful for the ministry of so many dedicated priests, deacons and religious. I am perhaps more impressed by the witness and faithful service of so many dedicated and gifted lay persons. Please know that I keep you all in my daily prayers. I honestly cannot wait to see what God has in store for us. Together may we hope and expect that God will accomplish God’s plans if we but trust and allow.

In our mid-summer weekday Masses, we read a series of parables from the Gospel of St. Matthew. These stories were perfect for summer with their portrayal of Jesus and his disciples by the sea and their images of farmers laboring in their fields.

It is imperative that all men — especially priests — be images of the unfalteringly generous father who is God. For men, it is vital to reflect the fatherhood of God in our dealings with everyone.

So counsels Father Jacques Philippe, beloved priest, and no stranger to the faithful in the Diocese of Colorado Springs. In his newly published book, “Priestly Fatherhood: Treasure in Earthen Vessels,” Father Philippe has words of encouragement and strength to priests and those who lead by the example of fatherhood everywhere.
