Bishop Christopher C. Owens believed that history had shape, order
and meaning. He also believed that exceptional men, as much as
economic force, have always produced change; and that abstractions
like beauty, nobility and greatness have a shifting, but continuing nobility.
Men make their own history, but they do not make it just as they please; they do not
make it under circumstances chosen by themselves, but circumstances
directly found, given, transmitted, with much of God's intervention, from the past.
It has been said that only strong personalities can endure history,
and the weak ones are extinguished by it. History is the activity
of men in pursuit of their ends.
Historic reflections have revealed that the Late Bishop
Christopher C. Owens
was always a visionary dedicated to pursuing his God given destiny;
always striving to stay on top of the situation regardless of the task, whether
it was civic, political, religious, spiritual, or merely an opportunity
to celebrate excellence and positive change with friends.
