My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you! As I was looking over some of the letters that I have written for Father’s Day, I came across one of my Little John Everett’s stories and I would like to share it with you once again.

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you! Today, in the Church’s liturgical calendar, we celebrate the Feast of the Corpus Christ, the Body and Blood of Jesus. This is the patron feast of our diocese and our city. Our diocese is the only diocese in the world that bears the name of “Corpus Christi – Body of Christi,” The name was given to this city when the Spanish explorer Peñeda landed here on the Feast of Corpus Christi. Today we give thanks to the Lord for the great gift that He has given us in the Eucharist. While celebrating...
