It is not so much that I dress like a Priest, but that Priests in southern California, with our mild weather, tend to dress down. I wear dark blue trousers and a lighter blue T-shirt. Blue is the color of the BVM, of course.
I wear a 5 inch San Damiano crucifix around my neck. It is a cheap paper copy pasted on cheap wood, and strung around my neck with a cheap, old shoe lace. Very Franciscan:D
I was in the parking lot of Albertson’s supermarket, taking home two large containers of cat litter. I was whistling “Veni, Veni Emmanuel” when a lady came up to me and asked if I was a Priest. This happens at times to those of us in the CFP, and we have been told to politely inform the questioner that we were not, but did they have any intentions that they would like us to pray for them. The lady asked me to pray for her intention (a private matter) and I said I would.
(Did I mention the corded Franciscan Rosary I wear on belt?:rolleyes:)
