Bishop Daniel Felton

Just a word about  the vestment the bishop will be wearing at Mass this morning; it may look familiar because it is the same vestment St. John Paul II is portrayed as wearing in our stained glass window.  Our former bishop, Bp. Schnurr was the executive director of World Youth Day Denver in 1993, when Pope John Paul II said the closing Mass for that event he wore this very vestment.  At the end of the program the Pope gave the vestment to Schnurr as a token of appreciation for the success of the program.  Fast forward many years later, when Schnurr became our bishop he showed me the vestment which I immediately salivated over!  The bishop had appointed me to be his point person for Vocations for the diocese and he told me that as soon as we get 25 seminarians studying for our diocese he would give me the pope's vestment!  We got there!  And when we did we had the highest number of seminarians in the country per capita of any diocese in the country, and the bishop gave me the pope's vestment which now is a major second class relic of my favorite saint and favorite pope.  The last time it was worn was ten years ago after JPII was beatified, and at that time I decided never to wear it again, but it seems most appropriate to have it worn today by our new bishop at the blessing of the sanctuary that portrays the great saint wearing this very vestment.  St. John Paul the Great, pray for us!

Diocese News from The Northern Cross

Father Richard Kunst: ‘What we own, we owe’: advice for the next homily about money

As we all know, the priesthood is a pretty unique profession. From the faith perspective, we call it a vocation, because that is what it is — a calling from God. From a secular perspective, it is a very unique job for many reasons, one of which I am sure we hardly give thought to: Other than maybe teachers, who speak to their students following a particular curriculum, Catholic priests are one of the very few professions that speak to an audience every day.

Editorial: Forcing taxpayers to fund abortion is extreme and wrong

Our Catholic faith rightly demands that we protect innocent human life and therefore that we oppose abortion and oppose laws permitting abortion. This is a straightforward matter of justice in service to the common good.

In our complex form of government, as our nearly 50 year battle to undo the damage caused by Roe v. Wade shows, doing this is no easy task when some of our fellow citizens disagree with us vehemently and when many more of them are conflicted and ambivalent. That’s why Catholic teaching, for instance Pope St. John Paul II’s encyclical on the Gospel of Life, make it clear that we can pursue this goal of protecting the unborn incrementally, step by step.
