At his installation as the ninth archbishop of Chicago on Tuesday, Archbishop Blase Cupich urged the congregation at Chicago's Holy Name Cathedral to fearlessly share their faith recognizing that God calls them "to more" and "to greater things."
Before an overflow crowd, the archbishop said he had "a bit of a panic attack" when he saw the day's Gospel reading was about Jesus walking on water and calling his disciples to follow him.
The media are the frequent target for many bishops in the church. New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan sarcastically reported to his fellow bishops last week that the recent synod on the family in Rome was actually fairly boring despite the media's preoccupation with conflict emanating from the synod. The media, in the eyes of many bishops and laypeople, are always the bad actor when it comes to coverage of the church.
