Connect the Dots


In reflecting more on Luke Wilgenbusch's valedictory address at the Father Ryan High School graduation, I was thinking about some of the influences that had help to form this remarkable young man and this remarkable event. The influence of Fraternus was very evident. A number of mentors from Fraternus were at the graduation. Luke cited Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati as a role model, including mentioning our very own Frassati House. A line of "dots" was starting to appear which seemed to lead to the smiling man above: The Most Rev. David Choby, Bishop of Nashville.

Thank you, Bishop Choby. Your visionary leadership and confidence in the future of the Church is bringing about such positive changes as this valedictory! Just wait until the Choby seminarians become the Choby priests in the diocese!

You're right, Father. Their
formation will be sound but please
pray for their future congregations
that they will listen with open
hearts and minds. Pray also that
these young men will be patient,
strong and take Peter's admonition
to "Always be ready to give an
explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope, but do
it with gentleness and reverence..."
Peter 3:15-16.
