When he first became bishop of Spokane, Blase Cupich was installed at the sports arena on Gonzaga University’s campus because he wanted to be able to invite all of the school children in the diocese.
So today as he prepares to leave he again held a mass with young people.
Gonzaga Preparatory High School was packed today for mass with Archbishop Cupich. A champion for children, Chicago’s new catholic leader says he wants to protect and inspire. He gets that he says from his parents.
“These are people who were practical who were loving dedicated and yet at the same time ready to think outside of the box,” he says. “And do something new and do whatever it takes in order to get a job done.”
And that is how Archbishop Cupich plans to face the challenges in his new role; being strong but listening.
“I think collaboration and consultation is so very important,” he says. “None of us really has a claim on knowing everything and we have to make sure that we listen to especially voices that are different than ours, because there could be something we miss.”
