"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Archbishop Bernard Hebda appointed Archbishop of St. Paul-Minneapolis

After nine months as the apostolic administrator of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, Archbishop Bernard Hebda was named the archdiocese’s archbishop March 24. The Holy See announced the appointment at noon in Rome, 6 a.m. Central Time.

The Holy Thursday appointment highlights the connection between his new role and the Eucharist, priesthood and service, Archbishop Hebda told The Catholic Spirit.

“It’s the Eucharist that brings us together,” he said. “The bishop is called to be that source of unity in his local Church and where that takes place is at the table of the Lord.” - Catholic Spirit

He seems like an excellent choice.  I haven't been following much and so I know very little about him, but it is good to have an Archbishop again.  Things should settle down now.  He's still 'young' at 56 so he should be around for quite awhile.

Thanks be to God.
