A New Era Begins!
Today as we celebrate the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, our new bishop, Most Reverend Edward C. Malesic J.C.L., is being installed at 2pm as the twelfth Bishop of our diocese at the Cathedral of Saint John the Evangelist. I will not be at the installation Mass, but I will be gathering with several priests to watch the installation today. EWTN will be airing the installation Mass, too. It is part of their Cathedrals Across America program. On this program, EWTN presents Masses from across the United States, featuring the dedication of renovated Cathedrals, the installation of Archbishops, and other momentous occasions. What a cool way to visit the cathedrals throughout the USA! In case you are like me and do not have cable, the Bishop’s installation Mass will be streamed on WKYC.com, the WKYC app, their Facebook page, and their YouTube page. You can also watch it streamed on DioceseofCleveland.org
, so there are plenty of possibilities to catch this awesome Mass. I hope Bishop Malesic likes being our shepherd. I look forward to meeting him. I have heard great things about him, so I hope we can have him as our shepherd for awhile. Please keep him and our diocese in prayer. God bless and stay safe!
