The Ad Limina Audience

Of the many highlights of our wonderful week with the Ad Limina Visit for Regions 8, was an Audience with Pope Benedict last Thursday. After the Hoy Father welcomed the Bishops of Minnesota, Fr. Melvin and I had the opportunity to meet Pope Benedict and have our picture taken with him.  This photo was taken after Bishop Quinn introduced me to Pope Benedict.  After the photos, Pope Benedict met with the Bishops of our Minnesota Dioceses, followed by an audience with the Bishops from North and South Dakota who are also a part of Region 8.
