Pope Francis wants some “lío”. “¡Hagan lío!”, right? I’ve got some “lío” right here.
Some time ago I started a project whereby seminarians could contact the great John Hastreiter at Leaflet Missal Co. with their hat size. Meanwhile, you readers get in touch with the same John and you buy a biretta. John then sends the biretta out. You remain anonymous to each other.
Thus, the Biretta For Seminarians Project.
I just received a note from John:
I have 23 men on the waiting list for a biretta.
TWENTY-THREE men waiting… waiting… waiting….
Very often I met seminarians who received your birettas. They always tell me with big smiles about receiving them.
Seminarians and potential donors…
Contact John in “church goods” at Leaflet Missal in St. Paul – 651-209-1951.
The phone navigation system at Leaflet isn’t great. Be patient.
If John is away, leave a voicemail with your phone number and he will call you back ASAP.
DO NOT WRITE TO ME TO ASK FOR A BIRETTA! (If a seminarian can’t get that straight then… how are your grades?!?)
There is also a SATURNO FOR CLERICS Project. Ask John about that, too!
