Sacred Scripture: February 2011 Archives

Bishop Pates' Ordination.jpgAt a priest's ordination as bishop the Book of the Gospels is held open over the man's head by two deacons, a way to communicate that the Scriptures are crucial to the life of the bishop and that Christ has infused His Word in his heart and mind. Archbishop Timothy Broglio said this when he ordained Bishop Spencer in 2010: 

"Those writings inspired by Almighty God and identified and transmitted over the centuries by His Church must fill you from head to toe.  You must be imbued with that word so that whatever comes from your mouth will be an expression of what you have read and heard.  You will have a special opportunity to deepen the faith of those to whom you are sent." We are to be similarly filled.
