After a week off, my team is ready & raring to go. I am playing Archbishop Jackels & Bishops Malloy & Nickless. Bishop Morlino had the week off.

Next week Archbishop Jackels will be off.

On 29 June 2013, Archbishop Jackels was in Rome to receive the pallium from Papa Francesco. I have some pictures from that at the end of the post.

Here is a picture of Archbishop Jackels receiving the pallium from Papa Franceco.


Here is a picture from later in the Mass. You will notice that the Pope gave him a very special one with the Fighing Saints logo on it.


No I am not saying that Papa Francesco is cheering on the Fighting Saints over any of the other teams.  But the fact that he allowed this unusual addition the the pallium does imply it.
