“What an amazing thing that Rome has given 2 bishops out of a community that is so young. What a tribute that is to Fr. Bob Bedard. What a tribute that is to his vision of life and ministry. What a gift. How wonderful it is to have the grace to be able to celebrate mass in his chapel, with one of the chalices he used all the time, preaching from the pulpit that he used all the time. How many hours did Fr. Bob spend in this chapel pouring out his heart to the Lord, putting his face on the floor and giving God permission? Fr. Bob is very much on my heart today!”
This passage is from the Bishop-elect Scott McCaig's homily during mass today.
