Priest from Argentine slums brings residents' gifts to Pope
CWN - August 26, 2013
A priest who serves in the slums of Buenos Aires visited Pope Francis this past weekend, carrying a heavy suitcase full of notes and gifts from residents to their former archbishop.
Father José Maria di Paola brought personal letters, small gifts, requests for prayers, items to be blessed, photos, manuscripts, and a soccer jersey from a club that is a rival of the Pope's favorite San Lorenzo squad.
