Story time with the Archbishop

A few weeks ago, the priests of the Archdiocese of Mount Hagen had a retreat at the seminary.  We were planning to take the Archbishop on a hike on Saturday morning, but it was raining, so we had a delightful story time instead.  We were all read the following stories in an urbane Australian accent:

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt

A Small Miracle

Horton Hears a Who

The Miracle of Saint Nicholas

My favorite comment was when he switched from A Small Miracle to Horton Hears a Who: “Now we go from the sublime to the ridiculous . . .”  As a token of our appreciation, we fed him chili.

 

We had Bishop Young over before for reading.  I think the first book I tried him out on was Fox in Socks, whose successful reading he took up as a personal challenge!
