Football, Monks & Friendship — Learning from Each Other

I loved this Catholic News Service video, a follow up to an earlier sharing, that looks at the blossoming friendship between NFL player Ramon Foster of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Benedictine Father Paul R. Taylor, the Executive Vice President of St. Vincent College. In the video, priest and pro share what they’ve learned from one another in this unlikely friendship. I’d imagine that both have been blessed in unexpected ways!

A question for you: Do you have any “unlikely” friends from outside your normal social circle? What have you learned from them?
