Fr. Bloomfield's Blog

I am a Roman Catholic Priest of the Archdiocese of Detroit, currently assigned to Divine Child Parish in Dearborn, Michigan. When I manage to keep the page updated, hopefully something interesting can be found here!

In the beginning...

The written word is a tremendously powerful tool to express, persuade, and inform. The spoken word, likewise, can be used in the same way. As means to an end, therefore, the spoken and written word exist prior to moral considerations: they may be used to further good or evil.

The Word, however -- the eternal Logos, the Son of God, our Lord Jesus Christ -- He is ultimately the purpose for the existence of these other words, spoken or written, multiplied throughout human history. May the words used here always point to the Word, direct our thoughts and minds to His service, and seek the building up of the Kingdom of Heaven.

As a Catholic priest, currently assigned to St. John Neumann parish in Canton, Michigan, for the Archdiocese of Detroit, I will post my homilies, my weekly bulletin columns, and other items that seem fitting.

Please pray for priests.
