I know parents who treat their children like little gods; apparently the latest in Rome is to dress up your kid like a little pope. This is the second papal mini-me shot to cross my desk this week. Not sure I can endorse this particular innovation in Catholic parenting, and this young man seems to have definitely made up his mind on his parents’ sartorial judgment. For the record, I dress my four kids like a late edition of the Monkees.
I presume this speaks in some manner to Papa Frank’s unbelievable popularity, but where does it all end? Are there papal "baseball" cards out there someplace already? Pope Francis PJs? Bedsheets? Pillow-popes?
