OGDEN — Even a Catholic girl who is barely 3 years old could understand the significance of Pope Francis being welcomed for the first time by members of the Roman Catholic Church this week.
“She picked up a cross and took it up to the TV and held it up as the pope was first introduced,” Jon Kasper, of Ogden, said of his daughter, Catherine.
“We’ve tried to teach her the sign of the cross,” he said. “Hopefully, he’ll be the pope for a while. He’ll be the first pope she’ll remember.”
Local Catholics this week expressed their approval of Francis.
