The Golden Rose

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.

The late JP II left a golden rose in Knock but the tinkers grabbed it, never to be seen again. Please God, we can cherish and honor this gift, and show we do have some something the American Catholic Bishops seem to lack "class!"
