Little Flower gets a visit from Bishop Talley, by Amy Hall

Memphis, TN,  July 21 — Bishop Talley made his first visit to the historic and beautiful Church of Saint Thérése, where Father Yoelvis Gonzalez is just settling in as parochial administrator. 

Regarding the day, Bishop Talley was full of excitement.  “We celebrated a joyful holy Mass, pondering the one thing necessary…before approaching Him for nourishment. Fellowship followed and was augmented by a BIG spread of nibbles. The folks were generous and I had the chance to meet Father Gonzalez’ s parents. All in all, a fabulous Lord’s Day” he said.   

How blessed the Diocese of Memphis is to have such a loving shepherd in Bishop Talley.  The parishioners of St. Thérése are also blessed to have Father Gonzalez shepherd them.  He, like St. Thérése has a very special way of doing the ordinary with such extraordinary love.
