Stairway to Heaven
At the invitation of the Pope, celebrated Canadian artist Dan Mazzone made a visit to Vatican. I asked him how he felt on his return to Toronto, and here’s his response:
Going to meet the Pope was an experience of a lifetime. We got to visit the Vatican gardens that no body really sees. Upon arriving at the gardens where we were scheduled to meet for lunch, we were overtaken by the beautiful flowers and fountains that seemed to be everywhere. I was a little nervous while waiting for the Pope. But once he came in the room, the energy was great. He was a sweet man. He asked me to pray for him. I asked if he could throw a couple in for me too.
