My family crib set was gifted to me by my Parish priest Msgr. Butchard
(now retired). around ten years ago. It had a few chips and breaks, but he asked if I'd like it anyway for the children. This was some time before I had even considered taking statue restoration as a full time profession.
Now each Christmas I remember Fr. John in my prayers, with gratitude for his priesthood, and how God worked through him.
By receiving this priests thoughtful gift and restoring it, I took another step on the road toward my present work. That little figure of the baby Jesus reminds me that God often speaks to us in little ways.
