Message to the Faithful from Bishop-Elect Msgr. Aldo Berardi O.SS.T.


"What I am for you, terrifies me; what I am with you, consoles me. For you, I am a bishop; but with you I am a Christian. The former is a duty; the latter a grace. The former is a danger; the latter, salvation." --- St. Augustine of Hippo (Sermon 340: On the Anniversary of Ordination)

On the day Pope Francis announces my appointment, my thoughts are going out to you, dear faithful, clergy, religious men and women, and laity, of the Apostolic Vicariate of Northern Arabia. I want to greet you and express my joy at becoming your pastor.
