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!
