Bishop Reflects on Pope’s Message of Love and Acceptance

Dodge City, KS (westernkansasnews.com) Reflection is often a key aspect of being in religious life and for Bishop John Brungardt of the Catholic Diocese in Dodge City the pope’s recent visit to America gave him pause.  When it comes to immigration Pope Francis asked all of us to remember our roots and open our hearts.

 

Another challenge for the church is keeping families strong in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision on same-sex marriage.

Some were critical the Holy Father failed to speak out against ISIS and how they performed beheadings of Christians and crucifixions on children among other atrocities. Bishop John Brungardt has this answer for those concerned about the Pope’s silence.

Brungardt stresses awareness is important, but that can be done in many ways which can generate movement on a particular issue.
