Members of local family granted audience with the Pope

By Gloria Massey-Chinea

GOD Is GREAT!!!! HE always is!

The Shawver Chinea visit to Italy has culminated in having a audience with Pope Francis for Sofia Rose Shawver Chinea, our oldest grandchild. She had made a drawing for the Pope and was selected to be closer to him! Look at the pictures… it’s a story to be told!!!! What a blessing this is and what an honor!

God, everyday you show us that YOU have our backs! May our prayers continue blessing our family and yours through the love of Jesus and His Blessed Mother. Happy Summer Equinox!
