MY HOMILY ON THE OCCASION OF MY GOLDEN JUBILEE OF PRIESTLY ORDINATION
I was ordained a priest on May 23, 1959. The homily was delivered on Sunday, May 24, 2009 in Corpus Christi Cathedral at the regularly scheduled 9:30 AM Mass. There was not prior announcement that I would be celebrating the Mass. I did not want a big public celebration, yet I wanted to give thanks publicly to God for my ordination to the priesthood, so I simply showed up for the regularly scheduled parish Mass and celebrated it.
