Pray for the Holy Father and for all the Bishops Courageous Enough to Correct Him
I spoke to Bishop Schneider at a meeting about a year ago. Our families both come from the Alsace Lorraine area of Germany. My maiden name was Schneider and I like to think we are related. Several of my nephews resemble him so perhaps we do share a family connection. Please pray for him. He's a courageous man and I was impressed when I heard him speak by his spirit of humility. That's something hard to fake. I've only experienced that a few times. Once when I heard Mother Teresa speak in person and with an acquaintance at my parish. Humility and holiness go together. If you meet a person who's full of pride and arrogance -- run the other way. Our Lady is our great model of holiness. Let's ask her daily to intercede that we might have the spirit of humility that makes us docile to the will of God.
