WDTPRS congratulates the people of St. Louis on the appointment of His Excellency Most Reverend Robert Carlson as their new Archbishop.
Before going to the D. of Sioux Falls, then to Saginaw, Archbishop Carlson was a priest and then auxiliary of my native place St. Paul & Minneapolis. He played a key role in my vocation during a very dark hour. The traces of that experience left their mark even in the design of my chalice.
Archbp. Carlson is one of the handful bishops for whom after every Mass I say a Memorare.
I hope you will, in your charity, stop what you are doing and say a prayer for him right now, to support him in his new and heavy mandate for the Church in St. Louis.
