Here is the text of Bishop Jaime Soto's homily during evening prayer May 30 on the vigil of the Feast of the Visitation for the episcopal ordination of Bishop Rey Bersabal. The prayer service was held at St. John the Baptist Church in Folsom.

In this evening’s reading, St. Paul told the Galatians that in the fullness of time God chose Mary to give birth to his beloved Son, Jesus. In that moment, the fullness of time, God brought about the unimaginable, an unexpected work of mercy so that we might receive divine adoption. In the fullness of time, God chose Mary to be the Mother of God so that we might all become the children of God through Jesus Christ.

As the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage traveled through the Diocese of Sacramento May 21-24, hundreds of parishioners of all ages became pilgrims along many stops at parishes and other venues for walking Eucharistic processions, adoration, Masses and youth events.

As the caravan carrying pilgrims and the monstrance housing the consecrated Eucharist headed east across Northern California, it also made stops Bishop Jaime Soto hoped would connect with different “marginalized populations,” including a Mass with farmworkers in Vallejo, a walking procession leaving from Folsom State Prison, a visit to a Sacramento ministry serving the homeless, and a maternity home in Placerville helping pregnant women in need.
