Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

Welcome to our new ordinary!

Congratulations, Your Excellency, and WELCOME from all of us!

It's official - Archbishop John Nienstedt is the ordinary of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. Am I really the first of the local blogs to post this?

From the Vatican's daily Bollettino:


Il Santo Padre ha accettato la rinuncia al governo pastorale dell’arcidiocesi di St. Paul and Minneapolis (U.S.A.), presentata da S.E. Mons. Harry Flynn, in conformità al can. 401 § 1 del Codice di Diritto Canonico.

Gli succede il Coadiutore S.E. Mons. John C. Neinstedt.

My quick translation:

Resignation and Succession of the Archbishop of St. Paul and Minneapolis (USA)

The Holy Father has accepted the resignation of pastoral governance of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis presented by His Excellency Harry Flynn, in conformity with canon 401 §1 of the Code of Canon Law [A diocesan bishop who has completed the seventy-fifth year of age is requested to present his resignation from office to the Supreme Pontiff, who will make provision after he has examined all the circumstances.].

He is succeeded by the Coadjutor, His Excellency John C. Neinstedt.
