God is truly with us – He lives – in this Diocese; most especially “in all the Tabernacles of the World.” This Eucharistic presence is only possible through the ministry of the Priest. I, as the Shepherd of this local Church, pray for an increase of Vocations for our Diocese; that many men will stand up to become ministers and guardians of the Sacraments. We need men to be filled with the Splendor of Truth and with the Joy of the Gospel. I pray that on this site you have a glimpse that in Brooklyn you will encounter priests who are with and for their people. I pray that for whatever reason you have come here – that the Lord who has begun the good work in you – will bring it to fulfillment.
With assurance of prayer and every blessing,
Most Reverend Robert J. Brennan
