The Pope Is Coming
by Mario V. Farina
The prized possession of my wife, Maddalena, was a 12-piece set of China place settings. We joked that we'd probably never use the set unless the Pope came for a visit. One day Maddie got a phone call announcing a visit from the Pope to our humble home. We were greatly excited and honored. We made preparations for the visit. This story tells about the visit. There was a surprise!
