This evening I was back in my hometown of Quincy with the Bishop for the celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation of St. Francis Solanus Parish.
During reception, one of the servers - a younger boy - came over to me and said, with all seriousness, "I thought bishops only moved diagonally."
Not quite sure how to respond, I answered, "Only when he plays chess." The boy just looked at me with a look of uncertainty.
I suppose I'll have to work on a response for that question should it arise again.
