The Torch Has Been Passed

Today, the Diocesan torch has been passed. Bishop Joe Vasquez sat in the Cathedra of Austin (temporary moved to St. William’s in Round Rock for today’s svent) and with that, is now my bishop.

I watched the first segment of the Mass at home via the webcast, until the conclusion of the homily. Kudos to the committee who organized the liturgy.

There’s really not much more to say from my chair. I wasn’t there and I haven’t met Bishop Vasquez (beyond shaking hands after a couple of Masses at a small parish in Houston). Of course, keep him and all church leaders in our prayers.

If you missed the Mass, CatholicTV will keep it online in their cathedral events section after a couple of replays.
