Boy, here's something to blog about right away. I just got a call from my friend Bishop Steibe of Memphis. He and I used to hang out back when we were in seminary together in St. Louis. Get this - he is stranded on the rooftop of his chancery office! He called me from his cell phone. The water levels started rising suddenly, and his office was built on very low ground (he's already called Archbishop Buechlein in Indianapolis to cuss him out for building the office there!), so he has been stranded there for nearly 16 hours. Poor guy! A boat came already, but it only had enough room for his vicar general and the rest of the staff (his VG is not a small guy, but then again neither is Bishop Steibe!). What a great guy, to stay behind by himself!

Okay, that's all for now.

Hello, this is my first post. Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Bishop Leo W. Clayton, Bishop of Norfolk. I am relatively new at being a bishop, and I'm really trying to do my best. One of my grand-nephews has a blog, and he is always telling me I should start one. But you always wonder, when you have a blog, what you have to offer your readers. I thought, as a bishop, I could probably offer something unique, since I don't know any other bishops who blog. I think Bishop Cupich over in Rapid City reads some from time to time, but he certainly doesn't have his own. Mostly this will just be an opportunity for me to talk about what's going on in my life. I hope you enjoy it!
