Archabbot Douglas Prayed With Arnie

Benedictine Archabbot Douglas R. Nowicki of Saint Vincent Archabbey in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, was with Arnold Palmer when the golfing great died September 25 in Pittsburgh. It wasn't the first time Archabbot Nowicki had visited Palmer that day. Palmer, 87, was in a hospital awaiting a heart operation scheduled for Sept. 26. "I went to say a prayer and give him a blessing. About an hour after I'd departed, I got a call" that Palmer's health was failing rapidly, the archabbot told Catholic News Service in a September 26 telephone interview. Read More.

Saint Evaristus
"The bishop also wishes me to start a seminary as soon as possible to educate young men for the priesthood. At present there is no such institution in the country [for German-speaking students]. Boys of the wealthier classes usually study for secular professions. For this reason, almost all the secular clergy are of foreign birth: Irish, German, French."—Boniface Wimmer, in a letter written on this day in 1846.
