I am blessed to have known Bishop Thomas. “I am nobody…” is not true. You are a Child of God greatly used by Him. I will pray for you in your new appointment. Never forget us here in Philadelphia or your visit to St. Therese. I know you were doing what you were sent to do. I was not receptive at the time but I know that God makes no mistakes……
On behalf of my family and I, we wish to send you best wishes and our congratulations on your appointment as the new Bishop of the Diocese of Toledo. Please continue to pray for Church and people of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia as we will pray for your new role. God bless you and we hope you will keep rooting for your home teams! Good Luck your Excellency
These photos are wonderful memories. I have a private memory of Bishop Thomas exhibiting respect and humility that took place the week after my son was ordained a priest. It was late in the evening after Confirmation at Mother of Divine Providence and Bishop Thomas was walking toward the rectory. We were walking to our car in the parking lot. The Bishop saw our son and hurried over, asked Fr. Tom if he could have his blessing and immediately dropped to his knees on the pavement to receive the blessing. It was humbling to see. May his Godly example of humility touch many more lives in the future.
