A LETTER BY BISHOP LOVERDE
“Let nothing disturb you. Let nothing frighten you.” This advice from St. Teresa of Avila, Doctor of the Church, whose feast day we celebrated this past Wednesday, has been on my mind and heart as I contemplate the commentary in the media about the Extraordinary Synod on the Family taking place in Rome. There has been a significant amount of attention paid to the gathering of bishops from both secular and religious media outlets. Headlines, op-eds, and tweets alike are contributing to a cacophony of speculation about the Church’s teaching on marriage, divorce, same-sex unions, and cohabitation. The noise is deafening – and it moves me, as your shepherd, to encourage you to heed St. Teresa’s advice and remain undisturbed.
