In November 2020, the man who will become the next bishop of Brooklyn ordained deacons in the Diocese of Columbus.

Below is video of Bishop Robert Brennan’s homily for the occasion. He offers this reflection:

“Do the will of God from the heart. Serve as people of love and joy, as you would the Lord. Today, you become sacramental images of the Good Samaritan, given the mandate and grace in a particular way to bend, to touch, and heal the wounds of others, the wounds of the world.”

Watch it all. It’s beautiful.
