Papal Honors




Today I attended an installment service at Sacred Heart Cathedral in Newark, New Jersey USA. The Papal Honor of "Monsignor-Chaplain of His Holiness" was bestowed on fifteen priests of this Archdiocese. The Cathedral was filled to capacity. How beautiful it was to see so many people in attendance, clergy, religious, laity. My friend Diana and I were accompanied by two Missionary of Charity sisters. We had a great time. Holy Mother Church is awesome!


Keep our priests, O Jesus,
in a safe citadel of your Sacred Heart
and there let them be sanctified in truth.
Grant that, through their word,
multitudes may be brought
to believe in you and love you.

What a great honor it must have been to witness that! Those very special moments in the life of our Church always leave me feeling ecstatic and overjoyed to be a Catholic.
