The Wise Matchmaker’s Match

Yesterday marked the installation of CUF episcopal adviser Archbishop Charles Chaput as the ninth Archbishop of Philadelphia. The archbishop’s inaugural homily in Philly provided an excellent catechesis on the relationship between a bishop and his local flock.

“My appointment to Philadelphia is an arranged marriage, and the Holy Father is the matchmaker,” Chaput said.

He went on to say, “For any marriage to work, two things need to happen. People need to fall in love, and together they need to be fruitful. That’s what we need to dedicate ourselves to today–to love one another and be fruitful together for the new evangelization.”

Read the entire beautiful homily here at Whispers in the Loggia.

And congratulations and prayers to Archbishop Chaput from everyone at CUF!
