New bishop in Shreveport

Hat tip to American Papist for this report from Whispers in the Loggia.

It looks like the Diocese of Shreveport in Louisiana is getting a new bishop tomorrow. The Diocese of Shreveport has had the second longest vacancy in the US behind the Diocese of Little Rock.

With more appointments expected ahead of Pope Benedict's visit to the US I'll be praying for a good and faithful bishop for Little Rock soon.

He was made known to them in the breaking of the bread

The Gospel from today's Mass readings was Luke 24: 13 - 25. This passage is very special to me as I related in my first post.

Today's readings remind us that we are called to make Christ known to the world and to spread His gifts. We should offer the gifts we receive from God in the breaking of the bread as our offering to God by sharing them with all we meet.

Assumption and Coronation of Mary

Anybody have suggestions for meditations on these two mysteries while praying the Rosary?

24 Hour Rosary: World Day of Prayer for Vocations

The few of you who still visit the blog may have noticed the image at the top of the right sidebar and thought, "hmm, I wonder what that is?". Or you may not have thought about it at all.

I would like to encourage you to think about it and better yet click on it!

Some of you may or may not have realized that I have another blog, Catholic Converts. This is where I spend most of my "blogging time" while unfortunately neglecting this one.

I have attempted to start an effort to get as many people as possible to join in 24 Hours of the Rosary for Vocations on April 13. The details may all be found by clicking the image in the sidebar.
