Bishop Gracida, still going strong!
Bishop René Henry Gracida is ninety-one years old, looks twenty years younger than that, and speaks out with the enthusiasm of a newly-ordained priest. He is unashamedly Catholic, unflinchingly pro-life, and doesn't hesitate to step on episcopal toes. His life as a war-time pilot, a Benedictine monk, a parish priest, and an outspoken bishop should be the stuff of books and movies, and I have enjoyed knowing him for nearly thirty years.
Bishop Gracida, now Bishop Emeritus of the Diocese Corpus Christi, has written down some of the highlights of his remarkable life in a series of posts which appear on his blog, Abyssus Abyssum Invocat/Deep Calls To Deep. I have assembled them in one place and in chronological order.
