Eagles have a fan in Bishop O'Connell


Bishop David M. O’Connell’s Philly roots were on display over the last few weeks, as the Philadelphia Eagles prepared for, and then won Super Bowl LII.  Sporting Eagles gear before, during and after the game, the Bishop showed his best form for the camera and was overheard saying on the Friday before the game, “Put me in coach ... I can be in Minneapolis tonight!” He was also suspected to be behind the singing of “Fly Eagles Fly” that was occasionally heard in the halls of the Chancery all week. 

On the day after the exciting and historic victory, Bishop O’Connell said, “This has been such a great year for the Eagles with an incredible finish in Minneapolis! A long time coming, for sure, but ‘the Birds’ did it, and Philly and its neighbors are going crazy. Sunday night there were even fireworks all around Trenton.”

The Bishop hosted some priests for the game and all the basic Philly food groups were represented: soft pretzels, cheesesteaks, Yuengling! 

He said, “I was struck by the Eagles interviews after the game … those interviewed gave glory and thanks to God, a powerful and impressive prayer that showed their priorities.”
