Honoring Bishop Kevin Manning

I was delighted to read that Parramatta's Bishop Kevin Manning received the 2006 Kahlil Gibran International Award. CathNews reports:

Bishop Kevin Manning received the 2006 Kahlil Gibran International Award at a celebration on Sunday night to mark the 25th anniversary of the Arabic Heritage League in Australia.

Bishop Manning said he was deeply honoured to receive the award, not only for the personal recognition, but for the recognition given to the positive role of religion in developing a culture of peace and harmony in the world.

More people need to follow in the footsteps of Bishop Manning.
