Last weekend I went into the sacristy to speak to our new priest. I walked up to him and said...”Let me introduce myself, I must be the only one who loves your homilies. I went home after your first one and told my husband I was going to LOVE our new priest.” He looked confused and the deacon was grinning as he left the room. He said that Bishop Clark just met with him and he, Fr. Brian, was wrong. I just laughed and told him I thought he was just fine...that some of us were relieved to see Bishop Clark go. He was a bit speechless.
keep reinforcing him! he’s going to need it, to do his job properly.
