Pope Francis, he noted, even spoke of Whiteface Mountain Sunday morning.
“But more than that, he spoke of our faces,” Viganò said. “He said that our faces should be bright like the face of Jesus because our dignity comes because we have been created in an image and likeness of God.”
It is important, he continued, to be in contemplation with the face of Jesus all of the time.
“If we lose our face ... we are not able to recognize the face of Jesus in our brothers and sisters,” he said.
The archbishop added that, by visiting the North Country, he had now seen the “bright face of the church in Ogdensburg.”
“You’re giving new courage,” he told the crowd.
