Red Mass to kick off legislative session will feature N.Y. bishop

Lawyers, elected officials, canonists and judges will gather at 5:30 p.m. tonight at St. Mary’s Basilica to take part in the annual Red Mass, sponsored by the St. Thomas More Society and the Diocese of Phoenix.

“It’s important for Catholic lawyers in particular to attend events like the Red Mass to really focus on their faith and be Catholics in the public square, as Bishop Olmsted would say, because it’s important to live their faith in whatever they’re doing,” Ron Johnson, executive director of the Arizona Catholic Conference, said.

“The Red Mass is certainly a great opportunity for all lawyers — not just Catholic lawyers — as well as elected officials and judges to really focus on how they can fulfill their vocations as lawyers and lay people to the fullest potential.”

This year’s homilist will be Bishop William F. Murphy of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, NY. Bishop Murphy served in Rome for 13 years in various capacities. He was named vicar general and moderator of the Curia for the Archdiocese of Boston in 1993.

5th Annual Celebration of Heroic Love and Life with international speaker and foremost papal biographer George Weigel
Mr. Weigel will take us on an adventure to explore Blessed John Paul II as a radically converted Christian disciple, a man whose literary and philosophical work, priestly and Episcopal work, and papal accomplishment all flowed from a thorough conversion to Christ and an intense personal friendship with Him.He will continue to share with us how the pontificate of Blessed John Paul II marked a “hinge” on which the Church completed its turn from the Church of the Counter-Reformation (formed in the 16th century) to the Church of the New Evangelization. He will then link all of this to the Great Jubilee of 2000 and the apostolic letter Novo Millennio Ineunte, which charged the entire Church to go out “into the deep” of post-modernity to convert the world.A catered dessert and coffee reception will follow. Please invite family and friends from near and far to join you for this exceptional event.
