Bishop Tobin of Providence, Rhode Island Will Discuss “Effective Faith” During Live CatholicTV Interview

On June 4th, Bishop Thomas Tobin will appear in an interview on the live CatholicTV talk show “This is the Day”. Bishop Tobin will discuss his new book “Effective Faith” and the ideas and spirituality within the book.

This is the Day airs at 10:30AM ET at CatholicTV.com and on CatholicTV. The show is rebroadcast at 7:30PM.

Katherine Haas of Catholic News Agency said of Tobin’s book, “Effective Faith isn’t a bombshell to the faithful, or even to the once-faithful or the not-so-faithful. Instead, it’s a nuts and bolts approach to being a Catholic.

Bishop Tobin isn’t trying to scare his readers into going back to church. He’s not leaving a trail of cake crumbs leading towards heaven either. What each of his columns does is give a basic explanation of the Church’s teaching on a particular issue or a personal insight into daily life from the eyes of a real, live Catholic bishop.”

In an excerpt from the book, Tobin suggests that if you are faced with a dilemma where faith and work collide, “Quit your job and save your soul,” he advises.

The book is broken into four sections — “Everyday Faith,” “Faith and My Life,” “Faith Through the Seasons” and “Faith Through the Life of the Church.”
John Franko, a writer with the Pittsburgh Catholic, wrote “One of his trademarks is that he does not shy away from tackling controversial subjects. The book offers reflections on “Abortion,” “Civil Rights and Human Life,” “Why ‘Gay Marriage’ Is Wrong,” “Racism: It’s Bigger Than Imus,” “Catholic Preaching: Powerful or Pitiful?” and “When Preachers Fall from Grace.”

In the book’s foreword, Cardinal Seán O’Malley of Boston praised Bishop Tobin for his skill in providing an accessible and effective means of sharing the faith through his columns.”

Bishop Thomas Tobin is a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Bishop Tobin was named Auxiliary Bishop of Pittsburgh and Titular Bishop of Novica by Pope John Paul II on November 3, 1992. He was ordained to the Episcopacy on December 27, 1992. Bishop Thomas J. Tobin was installed as the fourth Bishop of the Diocese of Youngstown, on February 2, 1996.

Bishop Tobin was named eighth Bishop of Providence by Pope John Paul II on March 31, 2005

More information on “Effective Faith” and Bishop Thomas Tobin can be found at http://bishoptobin.com/. Proceeds from the sale of Effective Faith: Faith that Makes a Difference will benefit a number of charitable organizations throughout the Diocese of Providence. Bishop Tobin receives no royalties or profits from the sale of this book.

Fr. Robert Reed on the Priesthood

The longer I remain a priest, the more I appreciate the priesthood and ironically not for all of the reasons I might have suspected years ago. As we conclude this Year for Priests, allow me to tell you a bit about my own experience as a way of revealing something most important about the Church to which we belong.

The fact is, I have grown into my vocation and, as the years have passed, I’ve come to find hidden riches. I suspect this phenomenon is true of marriage and religious life as well as priesthood. I do hope that, in 25 years or so, if I’m still around, I will have uncovered many more hidden treasures about being a disciple of Jesus, a Catholic and a priest. It is nice to be surprised by life and our God truly is a God of surprises!

How fortunate I consider myself and how excited I remain to be a priest. If you are reading these words and have ever considered whether God is calling you to be a priest, I definitely would give it a second and third thought. Honestly, many days I feel as if I was just ordained with new challenges always before me.

Actually, one of my favorite things to do as a priest is to distribute Holy Communion in the parish. It is for me a distinct honor to give such a great Gift to such good people and by the grace of God to make them rich! When people come up to Communion there is an amazing interaction. You can sense the struggle on people’s faces as well as the joy in this privileged moment of contact with the divine. From one poor person to another we share the living God and together we become even richer in Faith! Saint James in his letter asks: "Did not God choose the poor in this world to be rich in Faith?" It really is true: those who are rich in Faith are the richest people indeed!

It is one of the many incredible privileges of a priest to get to know many people at a very deep level, all the while remaining dedicated to all and no one person or small group in particular. In this capacity one sees the poverty of the human condition, the frailty that happily afflicts each one of us. And in this, one comes to recognize the need for God.

As we near the conclusion of this year honoring the Priesthood, what a distinct honor it is for you and me to know Jesus Christ. We know Him by Faith; not by sight. If we see Him with our human eyes anywhere, it is in one another. If you were asked Who Jesus is, you would hopefully respond with great enthusiasm: "He is the Christ, the Son of the living God." And that sure belief is what makes us blessed beyond belief!

God has given you and has given me many things and people and memories. But these pale in comparison next to our Faith in the One Who has saved us and called us to be everything that we were created to be.

Fr. Robert Reed

Cardinal Sean O'Malley and Deacon Gregory Vozzo (photo: Gregory L. Tracy)

On May 22nd, CatholicTV will air the Mass of Ordination from the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston. The three men being ordained to the priesthood are Deacons Guy Sciacca, Daniel Moloney, and Gregory Vozzo.

Cardinal Seán O’Malley described the transitional deaconate ordination of the same 3 men in his blog saying, “Though every ordination is a great blessing, this was certainly [a] small class for us. It was a visible reminder of the situation the Church was in six years ago.

In fact, it is a testimony to the faith of these men that they had the courage to come forward, even at that very difficult time. As I often say, following the Gospel is the ultimate counter-cultural action.” The transitional deaconate Mass took place earlier this year and also aired at CatholicTV.com and CatholicTV.

The Ordination Mass on May 22nd will air at 9AM and will be rebroadcast at 8PM. It will be rebroadcast again on Sunday at 1PM.
Before attending the seminary, Deacon Daniel Moloney, attended Yale University and received his doctorate from the University of Notre Dame.

More information about Deacon Daniel Moloney can be found at http://www.bostoncatholic.org/Events-Calendar/Event-Detail.aspx?id=14734

Before attending seminary, Guy Sciacca was a Financial Administrator at Harvard University for more than 16 years. Deacon Sciacca is quoted on the Office of Vocations website as saying, “Prayer is the center of my life. If I do not pray then I don't consider my day to be complete. It is important for me to begin my day by getting on my knees and asking the Lord for the grace for what I may need for the day. Throughout the day, I call on the Lord often, when daily life seems to overwhelm me and I am brought back to what is really important.”

More information about Deacon Guy Sciacca can be found at http://www.vocationsboston.org/StandardProductCatalogue_ProductDetails.aspx?ProductID=38

Deacon Gregory Vozzo said, “seminary life isn't as strict as I thought it might be. I'm not giving up being the person I was before; just becoming a better person - that is, more oriented toward Christ, more balanced and mature, and happier than I've ever been in my life.”
