Today Archbishop Fisichella, the President of the Pontifical Council on the New Evangelization visited Conception Abbey and presided at Eucharist.  In his homily, Archbishop focused on Christ’s question from the Gospel reading:  “But who do you say that I am?”  He spoke of the importance of our total and complete proclamation that Jesus is “the Christ.”
