I knew Bishop McGraith in his days in the New Ulm, Minnesota Diocese... a humble, caring priest with a Servant's Heart... and a gifted Irish storyteller... my sympathy to the people of Owensboro and beyond at this loss of your shepherd... Carolyn Puccio, CSJ

Bishop McRaith was always known as Father McRaith as he was our pastor, family friend and confidant to me in Minnesota. His wit and laughter filled our home on many occasions, especially Vikings football games. His steady support of my wife Jan and me as we worked through our mixed marriage with my family, will always be remembered and cherished. Here was a true friend who loved God and people. He will be missed.

My condolences on the passing from this life of a truly great, wise, and humble bishop. Not only was he an advocate for the poor, but also for women. (Perhaps his little sister taught him that.)

I attended a diocesan conference about 15 years ago, during which Bishop McRaith was asked why he did not ordain deacons. He answered that there are many jobs within the Catholic Church which are unpaid, have no prestige, have no title, but require a lot of work. "It is the women that volunteer for those positions. When I see men volunteering for those positions at the same rate that women do, then I will start ordaining deacons."

What wisdom!
