"It will be your mission and ministry, through act and in person of Christ as shepherd and head, to allow each day more and more Christians to either rediscover or discover for the first time that the Lord God, the head of the entire cosmos, wants to be their friend," Cardinal DiNardo said during his homily at the ordination Mass.
