Happy Birthday!

Birthday wishes go out today to Kevin Rhodes, Bishop of Harrisburg.

He turns 50 today.

(Yes, he is young for a bishop.)

I think this is a nice blog site Matthew. I had a dream where St Dymphna's name came to me, and her holy card image was sort of pulsating in the pavement in my dream, hard to explain briefly... but that dream and her name when I found out what she was the patron saint of, has led to me understand and accept with compassion and love what was going on( at the time we had no clue) with my husband;s brain and illness.
amazing ... how she has helped in ways I would not have guessed, but beautiful ways.Pray for me and my business, I support me kids and myself solely as my husband cant do much anymore and is out of state and not really in touch too much...I like your quote .

Hi, Jackie! (Pssst...Dymphna's real name isn't Matthew.)

For Dymphna: Bishop Rhodes came to Harrisburg after being the rector of the seminary at Mount St. Mary's in Emmitsburg. Or did you already know that?

Happy Birthday.
Our bishop isn't that old either.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
