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!
