Once a semester, the St. John’s University Chaplaincy hosts a speaker for a lunchtime event ~ and today was the day! Fr. Ramon Santacana is R. C. chaplain of Providence University, Taichung, and came to speak about Pope Francis, his life and witness. We had 40 university staff, students and church members in attendance – and for lunch too. Fr. Ramon is from Barcelona, Spain and has been in Taiwan for 25 years ~ he also shared his blog, canvascolor.blogspot.tw of his oil paintings and his recent art exhibition in Barcelona ~ clearly very talented in art as well as in his chosen subject!
Fascinating to learn about Pope Francis and especially his background in Argentina and the influence of his grandparents ~ an amazing man of God!
