Today in Stamford Connecticut at the very beautiful Basilica of St. John the Evangelist, I had the distinct honor to concelebrate the Holy Mass with His Excellency, The Most Reverend Frank J. Caggiano, Bishop of Bridgeport and about fifty other priests for the Mass of Profession for the Sisters of Life.
People today often notice other peoples talents and skills and will sometimes encourage them to pursue a career or pursue that area of studies in school. This often happens with regard to athletics, music, art, acting, public speaking and sometimes even politics.
What a beautiful weekend weather wise and more importantly for the Church. I had the honor of being at two seperate celebrations of Solemn Perpetual Vows made by two women religious. Sister Christine Ann Hoffner made her perpetual profession of vows on Saturday at main chapel for the Apostles of the Sacred Herat of Jesus in Hamden Connecticut. Bishop Cote was the main celebrant of the Mass and recalled having given Sister Christine a blessing eight years ago when she was first entering the community with the Sisters.
