ADDRESS OF JOHN PAUL II
TO ARCHBISHOP MILLER
AND THE BASILIAN BROTHERS

Tuesday, 13 January 2004

 

Your Excellency,
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

It is a great pleasure for me to welcome Archbishop Miller together with his Basilian brothers, his family members and other friends who have accompanied him on this joyful occasion.  I extend warm greetings to all of you.

Archbishop Miller’s episcopal motto, Veritati Servire, “to serve the truth”, is an eloquent summary of the commitment that has marked his priestly life, both at the University of Saint Thomas in Houston, Texas, and during his five years of service at the Vatican.  I am certain that this same dedication will continue to inspire and strengthen him as he now returns to Rome and takes up his duties as Secretary of the Congregation for Catholic Education.  With prayerful good wishes for his new ministry, I cordially impart my Apostolic Blessing to him and to all here present.
