Prayer for the Cause of Bishop Bruté


Heavenly Father, source of all that is holy, in every age, you raise up men and women who live lives of heroic love and service.

You have blessed your Church through the life of Simon Bruté, first bishop of Vincennes and spiritual director to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton.

Through his prayer, his intellect, his love, and his pastoral care, Simon Bruté formed future priests and guided your Church in the early days of our country.

If it be your will, may he be proclaimed a saint.

We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord. —Amen.

(Contributions to defray the expenses in furthering the Cause should be sent to Bishop Bruté Fund, Archdiocese of Indianapolis, P.O. Box 1410, Indianapolis, IN 46206.)

Bishop Hailanderé dies in France 1882

This post is a “repeat”, but I feel the need to, once again, make a case for the man that no one seemed to like. Over time, I’ve gained a new respect for Bishop Hailandieré, who died on this date, May 1st, 1882. He is the bishop we either call crazy, or the one we […]

Bishops (Past, Present, Future)

It has always seemed a bit ironic that many of the mileposts in Indiana Catholic History always seem to happen at nearly the same time. This is true again with this past and coming week being a time for Bishops… January 10th was the 23rd anniversary of the death of Archbishop Edward T. O’Meara. Born […]
