Bishop Murphy stands up to NY Governor,0,1609889.story
We need more bishops to actively stand up to the error of some legislation as Bishop Murphy has enacted. Same sex marriage is definitely an error for society. God bless Bishop!

Bishop Murphy is a hero!! He is a shepherd and a teacher - in short a Bishop. Thank God for him!

The reason for bishops’ robes being red is that it symbolizes the blood of martyrs.

For too long, our bishops have declined to stand up to the incursions into morality by our secular authorities.

Pray for Bishop Murphy and for his brother bishops. Pray that the Holy Spirit provides the words and inspires their tongues and pens.
