In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, we are invited to make a pilgrimage as a sign of fostering our faith and deepening our understanding of Christ's mercy.

But what if that pilgrimage were inside a bubble?

Bishop Edward Rice will be heading south to become the Bishop of the Springfield-Cape Girardeau Diocese.  A Mass of Thanksgiving was held at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis.  It was attended by friends and family of the Bishop.  "You are all pieces of the mosaic of my life," he said during his homily. Before entering Mass he joked with Father David Milsocia, Father Charles Sampson and Father Raymond Buehler.

Bishop Edward Rice's personable, relaxed style and his example of faithfully serving God and His people were on display at a Mass May 24 in which Archbishop Robert J. Carlson and Catholics bid him farewell and thanked him for his years of service to the archdiocese. He's headed to southern Missouri to lead the Springfield-Cape Girardeau Diocese.

SNOW VS. WADE

Lisa Johnston | lisajohnston@archstl.org | @aeternusphoto About one thousand GenLifeSTL youths prayed at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis before marching in pilgrimage to pray at the Planned Parenthood facility on Forest Part Blvd. The procession was led by Archbishop Robert J. Carlson as the rosary way prayed. They then returned to the Cathedral for Mass.

In the end, the snow didn’t conquer. Life was victorious.

That was the message shared through the witness and energy of 1,000 teens who came to the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis for a special Generation Life program hosted by the archdiocesan Catholic Youth Apostolate Jan. 23.
