THE BISHOP'S CROZIER: Vocations are the Key to the Sacramental Door

By Bishop James R. Golka

Bishop James R. Golka 0 70 Article rating: No rating

He summoned the Twelve and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal [the sick].” – Luke 9:1-2

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

It is common for a bishop during liturgies to wear the “miter,” or ceremonial headdress. The miter is a symbol of authority. It is important to note that this authority does not mean, “I am your boss, and you do what I say.” It is a much better authority than that. This is the authority that Jesus gave the apostles and the Church (that is us!) to act in his name.

Could you not watch with me one hour?”  This plea of the Eternal High Priest, our Lord Jesus Christ, to his beloved disciples (Mt. 26:40) is also my plea to my beloved sisters in Christ throughout the diocese of Colorado Springs. I invite women to participate in an apostolate that not only strengthens the Church but abundantly blesses those who pray.
