During the homily, Bishop Buechlein asked the question, "Why would six bright men chose to be priests and why would they remain priests during troubled times?" One answer was that they became priests because of their belief that "honesty and integrity are the heart of interior peace and authentic freedom." He added that these men trusted that the kingdom of God is where we will find "some ultimate sense in human suffering." Bishop Buechlein believes they were able to be faithful to the priesthood over the past 25 years because "first and foremost they remained priests who prayed. Faithful prayer is the key to fidelity to God and people." Happy Birthday! Father Robert Bultman of St. Francis Xavier Church, Vincen- nes, celebrates his birthday April 21.
