Coming back from vacation lets you see the world in a whole new light. Or, at least, that what happened with Fr. Dave. He began by noticing that I had a goatee, but refused to believe that I’ve had it for weeks. I had to show him video proof that just a few weeks ago we were sitting, right across the table from each other, and he didn’t notice. It escalated from there.
Though Fr. Dave was dismissive of it, the actual World Champions of Football are Chelsea F.C, which is my favorite “soccer” team. Oh, and something happened with American Football this weekend. Hard to keep up with all those regional sporting activities (unless, of course, the Buccaneers are involved). As usual, we spend an inordinate amount of time talking about sports.
My favorite thing about this podcast was learning about a new saint (or at least “new” to me), St. Margaret of Corona, who was a Franciscan Third Order Regular (which is the order that Fr. Dave is a part of). Really inspiring!
