Five Popes in One Place!

Monday greetings to all duing this final week in Ordinary Time.

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend; enjoyed being here in Chicago.

When I arrived at work this morning, a proof of one of our newest posters had arrived from the printer. The Popes Since Vatican II is an idea that came from the artist, Brother Mickey McGrath, OSFS. It is a generous 20 inches by 16 inches. During this year of faith which marks the 50th Anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council, we thought it might be a nice idea to get the "popes since Vatican II" together. Here is the result:

Popes John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul I, John Paul II, and Benedict XVI are pictured. The quote, chosen by Brother Mickey, is from the opening address of the Council:

Amen to that!

Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
