You may recall back that back in September, Pope Francis called for a day of prayer to pray for peace in Syria. We heeded that call and had a brief prayer service on Sept. 6 following our opening Mass for the academic year. The Union Leader did a story on the prayer service and placed a picture of Trinity students putting a cross in the ground on the front page. I sent a copy of the article to Pope Francis with a note telling him that we indeed heeded his call to pray.
Well last week I received a note just from the Vatican. I am guessing it's a form letter but it was still pretty cool. I found out too that the priest who signed the letter, Msgr. Peter Wells, worked for a time at a Lasallian school in Tusla, OK. Small world.
