The Meaning of the Bishop’s Coat of Arms and Episcopal Motto

Here’s the final video in the catechetical series on the nature and role of the bishop in the Catholic Church. This one was intentionally delayed until the ordination and installation of our new bishop last week.

This video is done by Chris Korte, the director of the Newman center in Kirksville, Mo. He’s also in the permanent diaconate formation program, and thus was one of my students a few years ago.

What’s the Relationship of A Bishop With His Priests and Deacons?

Continuing my diocese’s catechetical series on the nature and role of a bishop, I now share the second video.

This video deals with the question:

  1. What’s the Relationship of A Bishop With His Priests and Deacons?

The video is done by Fr. Daniel Merz, a former professor and good friend and mentor of mine, he even preached at my first Mass as a priest. His advanced studies are in the area of liturgy.

Enjoy!

 

What is a Diocese and How is A Bishop Selected?

In anticipation of the ordination of Bishop-Elect McKnight, my diocese has put together a series of catechetical videos on the nature and role of a bishop. The first few have been released, I will be contributing a video later in the series.

The first video looks two questions:

  1. What is a diocese?
  2. How is a bishop selected?

This video is done by Fr. Dylan Schrader, a fellow priest of the diocese and good friend. Fr. Schrader is currently working on his doctorate in addition to serving in a few parishes in our diocese.

Enjoy!
