His Twitter feed is littered with Catholic and St. Louis Cardinal links and stories. This isn't Br. Patrick, but Bishop Richard Stika of the Diocese of Knoxville.
After an 18 month hiatus, the Theology on Deck podcast is back and this week we were joined by His Excellency Richard Stika, a native St. Louisan and ardent Cardinals fan.
In this episode, Bishop Stika joins Brs. Patrick and Wesley to discuss the joys of being a fan, the spiritual life, vocations, and his ministry as the chief shepherd to least Catholic diocese, in terms of population density, in the United States.
It is worth noting that Bishop Stika's love of the game has led him to make several baseball-themed videos and he was even featured in a news story in his home diocese during this year's World Series.
We are very grateful to Bishop Stika and ask all of our readers and listeners to join us in praying for him and for the souls entrusted to his care.
