A Moving Encounter

31Jul13

According to Catholic News Agency, this is the exchange that took place between little Nathan de Brito, age 9, and the Vicar of Christ, his Papa:

“Your Holiness, I want to be a priest of Christ, a representative of Christ,” de Brito whispered in the ear of Pope Francis July 26, after jumping hurdles and making his way to the Popemobile in his Brazilian national soccer team jersey. 

“I am going to pray for you, but I ask you to pray for me,” Pope Francis responded, moved to tears and embracing him. 

“As of today, your vocation is set.”
