Piero della Francesca
Last night at the Easter Vigil at the Saint Louis Cathedral Basilica I had the privilege of being a sponsor for a candidate who was received into full communion with the Church, received the sacrament of Confirmation, and received first Holy Communion. (Some photos here.) All the words I have typed on this blog feel like straw compared to the joy of that moment last night. Congratulations Edward!
I also want to congratulate and rejoice with my friend Eric, who was baptized last night and, together with his wife, received into the Church. I also want to congratulate Courtney Wegener, who was also received into full communion with the Church last night, in Hillsdale, Michigan.
There is no substitute for full communion. Let us continue to pray diligently that all those who believe in Christ would be joined in full communion with His Church.
