Bishop Myron J. Cotta
“It is humbling and an honor to be called by God to this ministry of service to the church, in particular to the Diocese of Stockton."
As we work together for the sake of the kingdom, we are challenged to do so with the right disposition. Knowing, & reminding one another, that all this desire to serve originates from God, himself, & for his glory, not ours’. As proclaimed in this evening’s Canticle: “It is He (Jesus) who is head of the body, the Church.” We are to work in union with him; & then we will experience joy; because true joy comes from Jesus. We are to share the Good News, as Pope Francis reminds us: “All the Lord’s disciples are called to nurture this joy, the joy of evangelization.” “Let us keep each other in Prayer as we continue to seek God’s Will in all that we do. Together, let us move forward in building up the Kingdom of God within the heart of the Central Valley, here, in the Diocese of Stockton.”
