Dispatches from Rome: Day Three
On the third day in Rome, my brother bishops and I attended Mass at the Tomb of St. Peter, celebrated by Archbishop Smith. In his homily, the Archbishop recalled for us the grace of apostolic succession that all bishops share with the Bishop of Rome—to be at the service of people, with the mission of Christ’s saving grace.
