Lex Cordis Caritas - The law of the heart is Love

by Bishop Thomas John Paprocki
The front cover of the last issue of Catholic Times heralded the headline, “Confirmations and first holy Communions to take place at Cathedral.” Unfortunately, judging from the letters, emails, and phone calls to my office expressing concerns about moving the celebration of the sacraments of confirmation and first Eucharist to the Cathedral, it appears that some people have misunderstood the reasons and the implications for this change. Please know that it is my earnest wish and pastoral desire to stay as close as possible to the people of our diocese through the grace-filled opportunities this change will bring both in our parishes and in our Cathedral, the Mother Church of our diocese.
