St. Matthias Church
Thanks to God and Pope Francis
I just want to offer a prayer of thanksgiving tonight thanking God and PopeFrancis for sending us a truly humble and holy Bishop. Bp. Perez is truly a Shepherd and not just a CEO.
I and about 30 priests from the Suburban Southwest District of the diocese had an hour and a half informal dinner during which he spent time with each table just chatting with us like one of the guys.
Then he presided at Eucharist for about 900 folks from the district. About 50 St. Matthias folk were there. He came down to the nave of the Church and delivered a beautiful homily about what it means to be Church to others.
I just wanted to share with the whole parish what we were privileged to experience. If any others who were there wish to express their thoughts, please do so. And let's all of us say a prayer of thanksgiving tonight and also ask God to give our bishop long life with us!
