Bishop James F. Checchio poses with the Discalced Carmelites and their postulant at the Carmelite Monastery, Raritan Township, after the bishop blessed an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe there March 2. The blessing was part of the diocese’s Year of Spiritual Awakening as preparations continue to consecrate the diocese to Jesus through Our Lady of Guadalupe. The community of cloistered, contemplative nuns also shared a letter with Bishop Checchio that they recently received from Pope Francis, personally signed by His Holiness, along with some prayer cards he sent them. – photo courtesy of Bishop James F.
