Bishop Wester in His Own Words

The introduction to the latest installment of Bishop John Wester's podcast His Own Words: "As we approach the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, the period of mystagogia has already come to an end for those who were received into the Church at Easter, and the neophytes are beginning their lives as Catholics. This is what we're going to talk about in this fourth issue of His Own Words."

In the latest installment of his podcast, Bishop Wester, who is our bishop here in Utah, speaks to and of neophytes. This is a term we hear and use frequently about people new to something, or who are inexperienced. Do you know that it comes to us from the early Church, being the term used to describe those newly intiated into the sacramental mysteries, incorporated into Christ's mystical Body, the Church? I suggest that prior to listening to this latest installment that you listen to the one just prior to it on Eucharist.

By listening I can personally attest that you will be taught, encouraged, and uplifted.
