May I take this opportunity to welcome you to the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels as you gather for your Super Saturday Men's Conference.
As you know, the purpose of Super Saturday is to help each of you to become a man of God, to become a person who is faithful to his commitments, and to become a person upon whom others can depend.
I am pleased to see the continued growth and development of this special gathering over the years. I have supported this movement here in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles since its inception, and watching the Catholic Men's Fellowship continue to flourish and to help men to become better husbands, fathers, friends and Christians, has been a great joy and blessing.
I am pleased that you have chosen as your Conference theme this year, "Now is the Time." These are certainly marvelous words of motivation and they remind us of the promises of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Please be assured of my prayers that the graces of Almighty God will fill your conference space and that the Holy Spirit will continue to touch all who have come to celebrate in His name.
Asking the Lord's most abundant blessings upon you, and with every best wish, I am.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
- Cardinal Roger Mahony
Archbishop of Los Angeles
