(I took this photo inside the new Basilica of Padre Pio in San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy. I noticed this 40-ish man approaching the crucifix when I heard a commotion in that direction. His parents were trying to keep him from approaching the roped off crucifix, calling out to him, "Marco, Marco!!!" This man seemed to have mental handicap. He approached the crucifix despite the protest from his parents. And spent his time conversing with Jesus.)
Hear the daily homily for July 14, talking about this child-like man.
(After spending a good minute or more conversing with Jesus on the Cross, this man was satisfied. His parents, however, were not.)
