Cardinal-designate Joseph Tobin (pictured with me and Carol below), Apostolic Administrator of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, will be elevated to Cardinal today.
We have been blessed as an archdiocese to have his leadership for these past few years. We wish him all the best in his new role with the Archdiocese of Newark beginning January 6, 2017.
Please join me in praying for our next shepherd:
Lord God, you are our eternal shepherd and guide.
In your mercy, grant to the Archdiocese of Indianapolis a shepherd who will walk in your ways and whose watchful care will bring us your blessing.
In your love for us, give us the joy of receiving a shepherd who will be an example of goodness to your people and who will fill our hearts and minds with the truth of the Gospel.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.
