Archdiocesan Synod 2022 – This present moment

At the beginning of May, I shared with you that I was poring over the input that had been gathered at the 2019-2020 Pre-Synod Prayer and Listening Events and through the Disciple Maker Index survey. Not surprisingly, your feedback was superb and really insightful. Thank you! I was happy to learn that so many of you share my assessment that there are many indicators of vibrancy in our archdiocese, but we could be strengthened and enriched by a Synod process that would intensively address a limited number of targeted areas.

The end of the summer is always punctuated by one of my favorite holy days, which reminds all of us of the goal of our earthly pilgrimage. Our Lady’s Assumption (normally a holy day of obligation but not this year, because of the coronavirus) is an opportunity for us to meditate on the life of heaven, to which Our Lady has preceded us, and to which we hope to follow. This year it has special meaning for me in light of the state of crisis in which we find our world.

El final del verano siempre está marcado por uno de mis Días Santos favoritos, que nos recuerda a todos el objetivo de nuestro peregrinaje terrenal. La Asunción de Nuestra Señora (normalmente un día de obligación pero no este año, a causa del coronavirus) es una oportunidad para que meditemos sobre la vida del cielo, a la que Nuestra Señora nos ha precedido y a la que esperamos seguir. Este año tiene un significado especial para mí a la luz del estado de crisis en el que nos encontramos con nuestro mundo.

Going to a physical place dedicated to the Mother of God seemed like a good idea, so I set aside a Saturday and, along with a brother seminarian, made a one-day pilgrimage to the Our Lady of Guadalupe shrine in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
