The historic visit of Pope Francis is a moment of Evangelization for the Catholic Church. It is an opportunity for all Catholics in the Diocese of Cleveland to continue living our faith in Jesus Christ.
Bishop Lennon is encouraging everyone to follow this historic visit of Pope Francis; to read the news, listen to the radio and watch television and internet coverage of the event and listen closely to what Pope Francis is saying to us as the universal church. The hope is that we may grow in understanding and wisdom about what our faith is about, both personally and as a universal church.
