Bishop's Column
Written by Bishop Robert C. Morlino   
Thursday, May. 18, 2017 -- 12:00 AM

Dear Friends,

This month of May is, as always, a month for honoring and devoting ourselves to Mary, the Mother of God.

And in a particular way, as was marked by Pope Francis last week during his Apostolic visit to Portugal, we commemorate 100 years since the Blessed Virgin appeared several times to the three “shepherd children.” The two of those children who died in their youth are now Saint Jacinta and Saint Francisco Marto, having been canonized by Pope Francis on Saturday, and the third, Servant of God Sr. Maria Lucia, who only passed from this life in 2005, has her cause for canonization underway.
