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.

This year it has special meaning for me in light of the state of crisis in which we find our world.

Moreover, he manifests a passion for faithful stewardship and rendering accounts, and he was careful not to lose any of the sheep his Father had entrusted to him.

As the sun was coming up over Minneapolis Oct. 18, 2,000 Catholic school teachers, administrators and staff converged upon the Convention Center from every point of the archdiocese for the first Catholic Schools Summit, sponsored by the Catholic Schools Center of Excellence (CSCOE).

I felt privileged to join with this army of disciples for Mass.
