Over the last seven years, I have been blessed to travel across this great diocese to celebrate the sacraments with the wonderful people of Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore in their parish churches and missions. …
I would like to talk about one of these churches that holds a special place in the heart of the Diocese of Wilmington — the Cathedral of Saint Peter. ... It is a beautiful building with breathtaking stained glass windows and statuary. My favorite features of the Cathedral are the gold and maroon rosettes that cover the arched ceiling, and the larger-than-life statue of Our Lord on the cross at Calvary that is above the rear altar.
“I like that it talks about the covenant between humanity and the environment,” Bishop Malooly said last week after Pope Francis’ encyclical on ecology, “Laudato Si’, On Care for Our Common Home,” was published June 18 by the Vatican.
“This is what God expects of us,” the bishop said, “much as we have a significant relationship with God the Father through Jesus, we have one in our humanity with the environment because both are God-given.”
