Flat Father Stanley and Pope Francis
Some of you probably recall me mentioning that I have a class mascot for my religious ed class that spends a week with each of my students. His name is Flat Father Stanley. He gets around and goes on a lot of neat adventures.
This summer I asked Josh, a seminarian from our parish, if he would be willing to take Flat Fr. Stanley with him when he went to study in Rome. He agreed to take him along for the adventure. I figured he'd take some cool pictures and be able to teach the kids a bit about Rome and Vatican City in the process. Imagine my surprise when I checked my Facebook wall this evening and discovered this picture:
Do you see that?! It's Flat Father Stanley and Pope Francis! Seriously, how awesome is that? I'm so excited for Josh and my little laminated mascot.
Please pray for Josh as he studies to be a priest. He's going to be an amazing one someday. And Josh asked me to pray for the fourth year men who are going to be ordained deacons this Thursday at St. Peter's. Please join me in praying for them, too.
