"Standing Before the Risen Christ...."

Only after I returned from the festivities last night did I find out that yesterday's ordination of Bishop Daniel Thomas was streamed live over the web.

For everyone who had written in asking about it, sorry. Wish I knew.

Thankfully, though, the archived video has been made available via Windows Media, along with the text of Cardinal Justin Rigali's meditation on the role of the bishop as sign of Jesus Christ. Coming from one former official of the Congregation of Bishops to another, it was one of the signal messages of Rigali's tenure.

So if you're keen to see what all the fuss is about, enjoy -- and, through the gift of technology, welcome to Philadelphia.
