Among the Bishops who welcomed Pope Francis, I spied our own Bishop Cozzens, standing in front of Bishop Barron.
What is so very consoling is seeing all the Bishops united to welcome - enthusiastically, I might add - their Pontiff, the Bishop of Rome, Pope Francis.
Two other guys from Minnesota: Bishop Christensen 2nd row, center.
Archbishop Carlson, 1st row, lower right.
"The great mission which the Lord gives us is one which we carry out in communion, collegially. The world is already so torn and divided, brokenness is now everywhere. Consequently, the Church, “the seamless garment of the Lord” cannot allow herself to be rent, broken or fought over." - Pope Francis
Prayers for all the bishops and priests of the United States.
