'Punctuality is the politeness of kings'

I was sitting in a meeting of the Diocesan Liturgical Commission with members who were chatting for a few minutes before the official business began. Uncharacteristically, Bishop Niederauer was late. After waiting a few minutes, the presider proceeded without him. He arrived shortly then quipped, "Hmm. Punctuality is the politeness of kings." The words stuck with me. In recent times especially, I have reflected upon them deeply. >>>

SALT LAKE CITY — St Gregory of Tours, the sixth-century bishop who served in what is today France, records in his "Vitae Patrum" an interesting event in the life of his uncle, who also served as a bishop. Gregory’s uncle, Gallus of Clermont had traveled to celebrate Mass with a brother bishop in another diocese accompanied by a deacon named Valentius. Bishop Gallus had ordered his deacon to maintain silence throughout the Mass, but apparently moved by the occasion, Deacon Valentius suddenly burst into song in front of the gathered assembly. >>>

Friday, Feb. 03, 2006
SALT LAKE CITY — Shortly after coming to the Diocese of Salt Lake City in 1998, I attended a meeting where Bishop Niederauer was present.

Deacon shares fond memories of 'accessible' bishop

Friday, Feb. 03, 2006
SALT LAKE CITY — "Just like old times in the Holy Land, Max," the bishop greeted me as we vested for the noon-day Mass at the Cathedral of the Madeleine on Christmas Day. His exhausting schedule was not evident in his cheerful greeting. He was his usual warm and witty self. His remark, "Just like old times," was in reference to our pilgrimage in November to the Holy Land where I had the privilege of serving the bishop as deacon of the Mass at eight of the holy sites we visited in Israel and Palestine. >>>
