Everwhere this side of the Iron Curtain there was the joyous feeling that the US space- men were speaking for the human family. The U.S. was vindicating its role as the beneficent leader of free men everywhere, uniting all in a common brotherhood. We can't build a family of man unless we make each person feel that he belongs to that family. He must not only feel that he is welcome but wanted in that fam- ily. He cannot feel that he is a needed member of that family un- less he knows that God is the Father of all and Christ is the Redeemer-Brother of all.

There can be no community of man un- less there is communion with God. Bishop Graves will have the devoted help of many to assist him, as evidenced by his past experience. He gained not only the unbought grace of life from his parents, but he learned from them the goal of life. His mother will continue to inspire him and his father from heaven will con- tinue to support him at the throne of grace. And, if his brothers and sisters are anything like my brothers, Bishop Graves will always know where he can get the unvarnished truth and hearty encouragement. I have found family dialogue to be the most uncompromising source of con- structive criticism. Bishop Graves is fortunate in having attended St. John's Semin- ary in Little Rock as well as the North American College in Rome. He secured the best of both worlds -- the new world and the old; because he attended the North American College in my time, I think that he was there during what might be called the real vintage years -- though I admit this is very debatable. He was also very fortunate in having served in many capacities in the diocese -- assistant Pastor, tea- cher in the Seminary, Vice Chan- cellor and Officialis. These op- portunities gave him the full view of the greatness and the problems of the people of God, and thus provide a better opportunity for service. Above all, Bishop Graves has been blessed in having an extra- ordinary Bishop to inspire and guide him, Bishop Albert Fletcher. He has been a true father of the flock and if these times were not so touchy about the age of bish- hops, I would even call him a grand patriarchal figure for the whole State. We particularly ap- preciate the choice of this day for the episcopal consecration which is the 29th anniversary of the consecration of Bishop Flet- cher.

Here Bishop Graves accepts the gift of wine from his mother, Mrs. Agnes (Fant) Graves. Beside Mrs. Graves is the new Bishop's younger brother, John. rewards any effort with a hun- dredfold return, Bishop Graves will serve the people of GOd in the manner of Christ Who announced, "the Son of Man also has not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many." (St. Mark, 10, 45) May his labors, which have al- ways been unstinting and vigorous, have the full success as stated by St. Paul, "May Christ dwell in your hearts by faith and may love be the root and foundation of your life."
