Homily | Transitional Diaconate Ordination

Bishop Bonnar: Anyone who works for the Church knows “It’s not just a job. It is an adventure.” We could easily add to this slogan by saying: “It’s a vocation. It’s a journey wrapped in mystery, drama, and surprise.”

Column | Where is God?

Bishop Bonnar: As a seminarian studying theology, most especially the Second Vatican Council’s Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, I came to learn that God is present in the priest, the Word, the Eucharistic species of bread and wine, and the assembly.
