  • Open the doors of life to everyone
    Our mission as God’s people is to open the doors of life to everyone on life’s journey, especially the most vulnerable — physically, emotionally and spiritually.
  • Welcoming everyone to the table of life
    Anger and outrage over the recently enacted “Reproductive Health Act” (RHA) is no surprise for those who foresaw its damaging consequences. 
  • The world belongs to everyone
    This can’t be right. You feel it in your gut. States touting as “progress” legislation abolishing any protection for infants born alive during a late-term abortion. And now no physician need be present for any abortion. Isn’t that something Roe v. Wade (1973) was supposed to guarantee?  
  • I am proud to stand in support of our Catholic schools and our students who are growing every day in their faith and a love for learning in the very challenging world they live in.
  • Gratitude is the most personal, powerful and perfect prayer; in fact, the word “prayer” in this sentence is almost superfluous. For there is no way that gratitude cannot be a prayer — if taken to its logical goal: God. In that sense, whenever I give thanks, I give praise to God.
  • One thing you can be sure of. God is after you! Which means you have a calling, a vocation.  
  • Question: How many diocesan officials does it take to install a new bishop? Answer: At least two dozen. That's how many have been gathering at the diocesan Pastoral Center in Albany to discuss invitations, color-coded seating at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and, especially, the logistics of finding parking spaces for 1,200 people on a weekday afternoon in downtown Albany.
