Do we have celebrity amongst us?

Post by Doodoo » September 13, 2019, 7:25 pm

UDON THANI, Thailand (AP) — Catholics in Thailand are celebrating the official announcement of the first papal visit in 35 years, but one 77-year-old nun in a far-flung corner of the country has a connection that makes the occasion particularly special.

Pope Francis is due to arrive in Thailand on Nov. 20 for a four-day visit, the first leg of an Asia trip that will also take him to Japan, Catholic officials announced Friday.

The pontiff's arrival will lead to a reinvigoration of belief among the nearly 400,000 faithful here. But for Sister Ana Rosa Sivori, it also means the pleasure of a family reunion.

At St. Mary's girls' school in Udon Thani, about 570 kilometers (355 miles) northeast of Bangkok, the pupils have only recently realized their unassuming vice principal's connection to the pope.

I have seen her at St. Mary's over the years. I had assumed she was Italian, since the Salesian Order originated in Italy. All the other nuns are Thai. About 18 years ago there was a nun from Colombia at the school.

I met Lulu at the Two Red Shoes dance club in Elgin back in February 1964. Got an autographed picture and a snog... not bad for an 8 year-old.
