I love our bishop. He is courageous in many ways.
Fr. Finelli, I’ve probably mentioned a half dozen times here, Bishop Tobin confirmed me in the Diocese of Youngstown in the late ’90’s. I was a punk kid who had no idea what kind of man he was, what confirmation was, or why that moment was so important. To say I blundered it is a major understatement but I pray for Bishop Tobin all the time now. I just wish maybe he would have slapped me harder, or included one upside the head!
This is admirable. The announcement, though, (“goal of our Lenten journey”) mentioned something that I wonder about: When did “journey” become routine Catholic cant? I hear it in every Sunday homily now, but it seems to me that it’s something I never heard until recently.
The other day I commented that I longed for the blessed day when our Most Reverend Bishop would celebrate ad orientem in our great cathedral. It seems my pryaers have been answered. Honestly, all
I can say about this is DEO GRATIAS!!!! I am so happy for Bishop Tobin, and our great Diocese of Providence.
DEO GRATIAS!!!!!!! This native Newporter hopes that His Excellency’s Catholicity can finally spread southwards from the capitol in Providence down to the “Catholic-Lite/Marty-Haugen/de-facto-Protestant versions of Catholicism which plague the parishes of Aquidneck Island. I am blessed to call Fr. Finelli of Tiverton’s Holy Ghost Church a friend and look forward to returning to Rhode Island for 25th anniversary of “The iPadre” as a priest, which is currently planned as a Missa Solemnis this coming Trinity Sunday (June 11, 2017). Be there or be square. ;-)
Bishop Tobin is a gem. Honestly I don’t know how he manages in such a state as RI. Hard core Leftists are everywhere. He is a man among men, surely.
Brick by brick. If creeping incrementalism can go one way, it can go the other as well.
