Catholic bishop says Catholics and Mormons stand shoulder to shoulder as witnesses for Jesus

I know these types of talks happen all the time, but this one just made me feel good, so I want to share it. A Catholic bishop spoke at UVU on Tuesday and said Catholics and Mormons stand “shoulder to shoulder as witnesses of Jesus Christ.”

I just love that image of Christian people standing together to proclaim the truth of the Savior.

Catholic Bishop John C. Wester also said the following:

Wester noted that before Thomas S. Monson became LDS Church president in 2008, he attended every fundraising dinner for Catholic Community Services. Monson even did so, the bishop said, the week he ascended to the helm of the Utah-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The way the two churches come together, Wester said, “could be a model [for the rest of the nation] of working for the common good.”

Good stuff.

About Geoff B.

Geoff B has had three main careers. Some of them have overlapped. After attending Stanford University (class of 1985), he worked in journalism for several years until about 1992, when he took up his second career in telecommunications sales. In 1995, he took up his favorite and third career as father. Soon thereafter, Heavenly Father hit him over the head with a two-by-four (wielded by the Holy Ghost) and he woke up from a long sleep. Since then, he's been learning a lot about the Gospel. He still has a lot to learn. Geoff's held several Church callings: young men's president, high priest group leader, member of the bishopric, stake director of public affairs, media specialist for church public affairs, high councilman. He tries his best in his callings but usually falls short. Geoff has five children and lives in Colorado.
