what a gift!

meeting Francis before mass
Dear Family and Friends,

My heart is full of gratitude for God’s great gift today.

As I met Pope Francis this morning before mass, I asked him for his blessing on my family (I meant my physical family as well as my family in the larger sense – my fellow brothers, deacons, and priests, and all my friends – that means all of you!) and my future priesthood. He gave it with all the joy that Francis has.

I’ve spent a lot of time just pondering today’s gift, and storing it all up in my heart.

God be with you all!
Deacon Kevin
