The Convocation for Priests

I enjoyed the convocation which was held from April 9th through 12th. The speaker, Fr. Thomas Rosica, was an upgrade over many of the presenters we have had in the past several years. His mentor was my favorite scholar, Fr. Raymond Brown. Fr. Rosica’s main topic was Pope Francis’ five years as pope. Father felt that love and mercy have been the hallmarks of Francis’ papacy. Father Rosica had great respect for Pope Francis and felt that he has been the victim of a good deal of unjust criticism. Father contended that Pope Francis has not watered down the tradition of the Church. Father Rosica views Pope Francis as reaching out to the different of all backgrounds as Jesus did. I picked up two of Fr. Rosica’s books – “Stay With Us”…Encounters with the Risen Lord, and The Seven Last Words of Christ.
