Six sacraments in one day — UPDATED

What does it mean to be a priest?

Washington’s Msgr. Charles Pope got a vivid reminder — and a gift beyond measure — on his 50th birthday.

His account of that day is his gift to us.  Read all about it.

Bless you, padre, and happy belated birthday.

Ad multos annos!

UPDATE: The Anchoress has a few thoughts on this, too. 


  1. What a nice read, he is a blessing to many I’m sure and I hope he has many more birthday’s celebrating with the sacraments and cake. : )
