On September 8th, I had the privilege of being present at the Cathedral for the installation of our new Archbishop Charles Chaput. There is really only one word that I can use to describe it and that is awesome. For me, it is good to experience all of that pomp in liturgy once in a while. It takes a lot of energy to pray like that.
This is a new era for us in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. It is really hard to describe this experience, The Cathedral was electric – you could feel the excitement and the love of the Church as we moved through the Liturgy. If you would like to get a feel for this installation, click on the following link to hear the homily given by the Archbishop “live”. Take the time to listen and look. Once you do this, you may know why I am at a loss for words. Let us pray for him as he begins his time with us. What have you seen this week? Archbishop Charles Chaput\’s Installation Homily
