NCYC 2013

November 21-23, 2013 - Indianapolis

Christ the King video #3!

For those of us who couldn’t be there, here’s Bishop Christopher Coyne’s homily at last night’s NCYC closing Mass in Indianapolis. Simply awesome.

Are you “the king of the hill”?

The November meeting is only a morning old, and already the bishops have announced two new websites that are up and running:

The USCCB is live-tweeting the meeting, as are bishopcoyne and BishopSample from within.

Bishop Coyne starts a blog series about celibacy

A new US nuncio!

Finally! Pope Benedict just named Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, an Italian (obviously), as his nuncio to the US. We had been without one since July.

The nuncio has a complicated job. Not only is he the Holy See’s ambassador to the United States, he’s also in charge of overseeing the extraordinarily complex process of funneling recommendations for new bishops to the Pope for his choice. (Traditionally, the nuncio sends a list of three names to Rome for the Pope to choose from one of them, though the Pope can of course ask for a new list, as happens occasionally.)

So if you’re in Fresno, Salina (KS), Baker (OR), Pensacola-Tallahassee, Steubenville, or Tyler (TX), you’re waiting for a new bishop and this can speed up the process!

But everyone’s eyes are even more on Denver, Baltimore, and Indianapolis, which are waiting on new archbishops.

I think Jesus would have to be a Muggle - “God became man” - one with us. ;-)

It’s Tough Being You When…

you’re a Boston-born bishop in Seattle for the USCCB meetings and the Bruins are playing in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals and you literally end up tweeting this:

The games not on in Seattle!!!! 5:00 PM news instead! Shoot me!!!

Say a little prayer for @bishopcoyne

You are wicked awesome!
