BRAVO BISHOP JOSEPH E. STRICKLAND, MAY YOUR TRIBE INCREASE !!!

Here is an excellent homily preached by Bishop Joseph E. Strickland, Bishop of the Diocese of Tyler in Texas on the Solemnity of the Birth of Saint John the Baptist.  Bishop Strickland not only preached the homily himself in the Cathedral of the Diocese, he sent a copy of his homily to every priest and deacon in the Diocese AND DIRECTED that they preach his homily instead of one of their own at every Mass on that Solemnity.

I doubt that such a wonderful homily on the subject of the marital act between husband and wife has ever been preached by any bishop (archbishop or cardinal) in any cathedral in any diocese of the United States before.

Bishop Strickland is truly a good bishop.  His homily is just another example of how he teaches his people and governs his Diocese.  I hope that he remains Bishop of Tyler until he retires because his people would be devastated if he were to be transferred and promoted to a bigger archdiocese, but the good of the Church Universal would benefit from such a transfer.

I encourage you to watch this Vimeo, you may never have the opportunity to hear one like it in a church.
