On Monday, October 12, I had the privilege of celebrating Mass in honor of Christopher Columbus, prior to the annual Columbus Day Parade. These parades – the Pulaski Day Parade, the Hispanic Day Parade, the Columbus Day Parade – have been new and joyful experiences for me. I am especially happy that these parades are preceded by prayer, as people come to Saint Patrick’s Cathedral for Mass, to thank Almighty God for all of His blessings.
A number of people asked me for a copy of my homily from the Columbus Day Mass, which can be found here:
