Archbishop's Letter: Retirement? There has been a great deal of discussion about my retirement plans.  It first began with the Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA) message that I taped this year in which I said that I would be sending my letter of resignation as required by Canon Law to the Pope on July 9, my 75th birthday.  I noted that it would take perhaps a year for Pope Francis to send a new archbishop.  In meantime, I will be the Archbishop of Santa Fe.More> En español>

On Wednesday, March 26, 2014 Most Rev. Michael J. Sheehan, Archbishop of Santa Fe, met with Pope Francis for the first time during a business trip to Rome, Italy.  Conversing in Italian with him, Archbishop said, “Holy Father, you and I have never met.  This is the first time, but I just want to tell you something.”  Pope Francis said, “What? What?”   Archbishop Sheehan replied, “You’re doing a tremendous ministry as successor of St. Peter.  You’re bringing such hope and joy to the people by your words, your life and your lifestyle.  You’re doing a great job as pope!”  The above photo was taken at this time when the Holy Father smiled and patted Archbishop Sheehan on the hand.

 Archbishop Sheehan had another brief encounter with the Holy Father the next day after he concelebrated Mass with the pope and about 15 other visiting bishops at the pope’s Vatican residence when he presented a gift of a unique rosary handcrafted by Roberto Lavadie, a Taos artist.  The rosary was made from special clay distinct to the Pueblo of Ohkay Owingeh located near Española, NM.  Once again, Archbishop Sheehan extended his deep gratitude to Pope Francis.

The business trip to Rome was planned a year in advance as part of Archbishop Sheehan’s regular ministry to his seminarians and to conduct archdiocesan business.  He met with archdiocesan seminarians. Traveling with him was Rev. Larry Brito, pastor of San Juan Bautista, Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo, NM. (Photo courtesy Fotografia Felici)
