Archbishop asks people of northeast Nebraska to support Annual Appeal in this historic year

This fall, on Oct. 2 to be exact, we mark the 125th anniversary of the day when the Diocese of Omaha was established by Pope Leo XIII. During the years leading up to 1885, the area that now forms our archdiocese was a part of the church's mission territory. The missionary bishop and priests preached the Gospel and celebrated the sacraments across the northern half of what had been the Louisiana Purchase.

In 1885, Bishop James O'Connor headed the newly formed Diocese of Omaha, which was a much more manageable size. It only covered what is now Nebraska and Wyoming!

Sept. 17-19 » Annual meeting and investiture, Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, Kansas City.

All you have to do is ask

In case you missed it - and most of us probably did - this past Sunday (Sept. 12) was "Back to Church" Sunday across the nation.

So why did we miss it? Well, for one thing, it was coordinated through a non-denominational Protestant group, and didn't receive much attention in Catholic circles or, for that matter, in mainline Protestant churches.

Nebraska legislature seeking to stay on top of health care reform

Like it or not - and there are reasonable and unreasonable arguments on both sides of this equation - the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act (modifications made before the ink on the original bill was dry) constitute the law of the land on health care reform.

Implementation is underway. Unless further changes are drastic, it will be a long process with lots of frustration along the way.

The power of prayer and the power of sharing

As summer raced by, I was reminded on so many occasions and for so many reasons, about the power of prayer. Sometimes the prayers were for me. Sometimes they were for a specific intention. Sometimes I prayed alone. Sometimes the church was full. Some were prayers with an ask and some were prayers of gratitude.

But whatever the reason, time or place, I relied deeply on my faith that with the Lord, all things are possible.
