Prayer & Scripture
One of the most powerful tools that the Lord gives us is His Holy Word, the Bible. To pray over Sacred Scripture is a fruitful way to develop and mature our prayer life! I encourage you to watch this week’s video, where I discuss Scripture and Prayer.
We have had a beautiful week here in the Diocese of Bridgeport. We have two important celebrations ahead before summer begins. First, is this Saturday, at 11am at the Cathedral of St. Augustine, where I will ordain Jim Bates to the Transitional Diaconate. One week from Saturday, on the 24th, I will ordain three men to the Priesthood at the Cathedral of St. Augustine. Please consider joining us for these beautiful celebrations, and of course, pray for those who will be ordained at the end of this month.
As you prepare to travel, or perhaps take vacation this summer, I would encourage you to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to stay in touch with your Diocese. If you are away from the Diocese, send a selfie with the church you are attending and send it to our Diocesan Twitter (@diobpt). They will post it!
Have a wonderful weekend. I will see you next week with another reflection.
We want to hear from you.
Please share your comments or questions for the bishop.
Losing Objects and Losing Hearts; Bishop Reflects on St. Anthony of Padua
BRIDGEPORT– For as long as I could remember, today was an important day in my home. For today is the Feast of Saint Anthony of Padua, the patron saint of my parents’ home town in Italy and the saint for whom my sister was named (Antonia).

Rowing towards God
It is rare that I remember any of my dreams. Last night, however, was an exception. Towards 3:00 am, I woke up in the middle of a dream, vividly remembering one scene. It was an incident that happened last year when I visited a classmate’s summer home in New Jersey, along with other seminary classmates.
