Did anyone notice that our Holy Father seemed a bit surprised at the gift from the Archdiocese of Washington? It was a check for $890,000 to be used towards his charities. He seemed to start and I am conflicted as to whether it was the amount of the gift, or the fact that it was money itself.
Our Holy Father's gift is beautiful - a Golden Rose in honor of Our Mother. Next time I'm in D.C., I'm visiting that rose.
