A Brief Greeting from the Diocese of Buffalo

Happy Wednesday to you all.

I am sitting here in the airport in Buffalo, New York, after having delivered a keynote address this morning, focused on "cultivating a sacramental spirituality" for priests and lay ministers here in the Diocese of Buffalo. There were about 150 in attendance and we were able to go into the beautiful chapel at Christ the King Seminary and experience a baptism renewal. There's a marvelous pipe organ here, which was a great delight as we sang the Herman Stuempfle text "God, Who at the Font Once Named Us." Here's a photo of the chapel:

I will talk more about my experience here in tomorrow's blog.

Gotta sing. Gotta Pray.

Thank you for the beatiful Baptismal renewal we experienced. To remember ur parents and godparents and that special day with it all began for us was truly uplifting. The music, participation with the "body of Christ" was awesome.
