How prodigal of Pope Francis! Thank you Holy Father.

A solid bronze replica (weighs a ton) of this detail of the Holy Door at Saint Peter’s.

The Holy Father commissioned one for each Missionary of Mercy.

My licentiate thesis at the Pontifical Biblical Institute was on this scene of Luke 15.

I am deeply touched by this gesture of his thanks to us. Thank you, Holy Father.

Btw: that’s a donkey with his ears laid way back, right?

    This is a more than beautiful gift. I like the horse and the dog; the two best animal friends man will ever have.

    hmm…not a donkey. But why the well and the palm trees ?

  8. The donkey is truly in the eye of the beholder!
