Hello and welcome,
As I do each year, I am posting my blog a bit earlier than normal for Holy Week, before we begin the Triduum.
I want to begin this week saying that the recent events in Belgium, causing the deaths of more than 30 innocent people, are a great source of sorrow for all of us. We pray that the sectarian violence and terrorism will be overcome by people working together to find a more just way to settle their differences than trying to terrorize innocent populations.
In response to these terrible attacks, the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of Louisville, sent a letter of support to Archbishop Josef De Kesel of Mechelen-Brussel that I would like to share with you HERE
