By Most Reverend Gerald R. Barnes
Taken from Bishop Gerald Barnes’ address at the Combined Vicariate Meeting with the parishes of the San Bernardino Pastoral Region on February 5.
In the midst of celebrating who we are as families, the opportunity that’s given to us, we cannot lose sight of the many challenges that our families are facing today. We can celebrate without dismissing the pain the reality that our people live. I want to mention some of these tensions and there are many.
