Bishop James Conley
Bishop of Lincoln, Nebraska
Truth without mercy is callused legalism. Mercy without truth is unhelpful sentimentality. As missionary disciples of Jesus Christ, we must be merciful witness to truth, and truthful sources of mercy. Only the unity of truth and mercy leads others to holiness, and represents faithful service to Christ and His Church.
Credo St. Louis is honored to welcome Bishop James Conley, Bishop of Lincoln, Nebraska, to speak our annual Christ the King forum. A convert to Catholicism, Bishop Conley was ordained a priest in 1985, and served the Church for ten years in Rome at the Congregation for Bishops, before receiving episcopal consecration himself in 2008. Now leading the Diocese of Lincoln, he has maintained the good model set in place by his predecessors, Bishops Glennon Flavin and Fabian Bruskewitz, focusing on solid Catholic education in all of his diocesan schools, reserving service at the altar to men, and encouraging priestly vocations, with dozens of seminarians currently studying in their seminary. He recently has taken a strong, public stance against the trend of transgenderism spreading across the country, steadfastly proclaiming the beauty of God’s teaching on sexuality. In all of his works, Bishop Conley has seen his life as a priest as a call to service and complete surrender to “God’s providential hand.”
