“Thank you for inviting me to serve on this panel with President John Garvey. I’m delighted to be with you today to discuss religious liberty and I hope my remarks will provide some fodder for discussion.
“As noted, I serve as the U.S. Bishops’ ‘point person’ on issues of religious freedom, mostly those that pertain to its erosion here in the United States. When I was ordained a bishop twenty-two years ago, this is the last thing I thought I’d ever do for the Bishops’ Conference. So this must truly be a part of God’s plan for my life!”
