In the last year of his life, Saint Anthony of Padua had a tree house built in a walnut tree, to use as a hermitage, a place of prayer and contemplation. These are reflections coming from my contemplating God's world as a Secular Franciscan.

Boston Boy Coming Home to New England
I just read a tweet from Bishop Christopher Coyne, auxiliary Bishop of Indianapolis, IN, announcing that Pope Francis has named him as the new Bishop of Burlington, VT.
Bishop Coyne was originally ordained as a priest for the Archdiocese of Boston. Besides serving in the parishes, he was a press liaison for the Archdiocese. He is one of the few bishops in the US who maintains an active blog.
