You always have to start out with the value of life  

As reported in the Hampton Roads Pilot Online, in last Wednesday's news conference for my new bishop, Francis Xavier DiLorenzo, he was asked what he would emphasize in the Diocese of Richmond. He replied, "You always have to start out with the value of life. All other rights are essentially linked to it.”

He has also has displayed his support for the sanctity of marriage:

In 1998, DiLorenzo issued a letter urging Catholics to vote for a referendum that would let Hawaii’s legislators restrict marriage to opposite-sex couples only.

That call was prompted by a court ruling that was favorable to the notion of same-sex marriages. The referendum passed.

These are very good signs. May God grant him wisdom and an increase in faith, hope, and love as the new shepherd for Richmond.
