When God wills it, it will happen. 🙏🏻 We had the chance to meet Our Holy Father Pope Francis and attend First Friday Mass with Him celebrating it. We were even given the chance to shake his hand and say a few words. Feeling so blessed since the mass we were supposed to attend was to be on Sunday with Dylan and the rest of the boys, i was not supposed to catch it since i was leaving on Saturday, but suddenly we were invited to attend the mass on Friday. 😊 hope to share more pictures when we get it from the official photographer. 🙏🏻😇🙏🏻⛪️
