My boy wrote a letter to the pope a couple of months ago – he wouldn’t tell me what was in it because.. confidential.. but he was pretty excited to send it off and see if the pope answered his question.
It’s an interesting road I find myself on with these kids going to Catholic school. I’m learning a lot about the religion and they’re embracing it a lot more than I would have expected.
Today he got a letter back from the pope. He won’t tell me what it said because… confidential… but there was also included a rosary that had been blessed by the pope as well as his signed picture.
I continue to be amazed at how seriously this kid takes his spirituality. He certainly knows he’s a spiritual being having a human experience, not a human being having a spiritual experience. Happiness.
