This is a Novus Ordo – The Vision Will Not Disappoint

This photo was taken four years ago. It was our first Christmas with the Communion rail.

Ad orientem, Communion Rails, Communion on the tongue while kneeling, Sacred Beauty, Sacred Music, Truth with Love … all of it … was inspired by the vision of Bishop Morlino.

Bishop Morlino’s Coat of Arms had on it the words, Visus Non Mentietur … “The Vision Will Not Disappoint.” I trusted his vision, and I did not blink, once I understood his vision.

Yes, I had those who weaponized “leaving the parish,” and others did all they could to “Saul Alinsky” me (Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it) … but, “The Vision Did Not Disappoint.”

Our parish continues to grow, is loaded with young families open to life, and we have some of the strongest Catholics on the planet.

My brother priests, take the leap … you will not regret it … “The Vision Will Not Disappoint.”
