'Build it and they will come'

 | 

The BBC has a very inspiring story of a chain-smoking Franciscan priest from Malta, Fr. Alberto Gauci, whom everyone simply calls Padre Alberto. He is the brains behind the building of a 20,000-capacity sporting stadium in a town of Juticalpa, a dusty cattle-ranching town in the rural state of Olancho, Honduras.

If anyone needs an example of the type of priesthood Pope Francis is looking for, you don't have to look any farther than Father Alberto. God bless him and the Hondurans of Juticalpa.
