Duchene and Emily Storms, Aletha | September 28, 2015
“So Ms. Storms, aren’t there like, a bunch of popes out there? Why is this pope so famous? ”
“Ms. Duchene, does the pope always wear a white dress?”
“So you’re trying to tell me that the pope lives in a placed called Vatican City that is a country inside of a city? Ms. Storms, stop messing with us!"
As Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) teachers at St. Thomas More Catholic Academy in southeast Washington D.C., we’ve spent the first few weeks of this school year preparing our classes for Pope Francis’ visit. Our students’ unabashed curiosity has turned these religion lessons into humorous and thought-provoking classroom discussions.
