bamberaOur bishop has been elected to chair the U.S. Bishops Committee on Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs, though his role as Chair won’t officially begin for almost a year.  Read more about his responsibilities on the USCCB and his recent election HERE.

Remembering Jesus’ prayer

May they all be one.  As you, Father, are in me and I in you, may they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.  The glory that you have given me I have given to them, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one, and thus the world may know that you have sent me and that you have loved them even as you have loved me.  (John 17:21-23)

and also remembering that Pope Francis said

In these months, meeting so many non-Catholic Christians, or reading their letters, I have been able  to see how, despite the open questions that still separate us, there is a strong and widespread desire to walk together…the pursuit of full Christian unity remains a priority for the Catholic Church, and thus    it is daily one of my chief concerns. (20-Nov-2014)

Let’s continue to keep Bishop Bambera in our prayers, especially as he prepares for this new role.
Congratulations, Bishop Bambera !!
