You've all heard of the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, right?
Well now it's time for the Seven Degrees of Pope Francis.
|That's right it is TIME!|
What a crazy exciting week!
I heard about the new Pope at work when it was announced over the school's loudspeakers that THERE WAS WHITE SMOKE!
Gotta love Catholic Historical Occasions!
The next day, Eamon's awesome kindergarten teacher, Sr. Muriel, dressed him up as Pope Francis I and he walked around to each classroom and gave his papal blessing.
Gotta love Catholic schools!

Eamon and Pope Francis have another similarity...they are both the middle children of 5 kids!
Gotta love big Catholic families!
The resemblance is spooky, amiright?
This picture is from Xander sitting on the kitchen counter singing Old MacDonald. And you know what Old MacDonald is about? Animals. And you know who loved animals? St. Francis of Assisi....who Pope Francis named himself after!
Gotta love Catholic Saints!
This one isn't even as much of a reach as the last one....
Andrew was born on the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi.
Coincidence? I think not!
Gotta love Catholic Feast Days!
Today Phil and I can wear green dress down to work.
See what shirt we both picked out?
|Franciscan minds think alike!|
|Welcome to the gun show :)|
He is so gonna kill me for posting this picture...
Gotta love Catholic Universities!
7) The final connection to Pope Francis is that Phil and I went to the Italy while we were in college.
|At the Vatican in 2000|
We went to the Vatican (where Pope Francis will reside) and we went to Assisi (of the St. Francis fame). Assisi holds a special place in my heart because it was where Phil finally got up the nerve to kiss me :)
Gotta love a Catholic Love Story!
So how are you connected to Pope Francis?
Have a great Irish weekend everyone!
Go see Jen and friends for more...
