This week we join our diocesan family in celebrating Bishop Loverde’s upcoming 50th anniversary of priestly ordination, drawing particular attention to his role as an evangelist through traditional and new media. As Bishop Loverde has written, “Evangelization simply means sharing the Good News about a Person, Jesus Christ. It is you and I taking a step toward Jesus…and then toward others to introduce Him. In all times, all around the world, the Church has existed to evangelize, to proclaim Jesus Christ” (Go Forth with Hearts on Fire, 9-10).

If you aren’t following him, be sure to today! And if you already are, invite a friend to follow him so that he or she can receive his succinct encouragement and wisdom! Sometimes a sound byte from the shepherd is just what we need.
