The Most Reverend Edward K. Braxton, Ph.D., S.T.D.
Bishop of Belleville
Pentecost Sunday, 2006

Jesus Christ has called us to be His witnesses! We are confident that the Holy Spirit truly will be our Advocate, our helper, so that we can be witnesses to Christ’s life, teachings, suffering, death, and resurrection as we carry out our mission as the Church in Southern Illinois, with confidence, with hope, and with joy.
