Last night at St Thomas the Apostle, Archbishop Gregory joined us for the confirmation of over 64 teenagers. It was good to have him back in Atlanta after his trip to Rome to cover the Papal Conclave for ABC News.
As always, it was a joy to be in his presence. The love and attention he showed for each of the confirmandi that evening is a testament to what a good Shepard is all about. This mutual love was returned to him at the end of the Mass. One after another, people came to him for photographs and expressions of thanks. Although I know it had been a long day, he spent time with all of them and treated each one of them as if they were his family.
He is a Good Shepard.
