Random act of kindness

On my last day in Rome, I had lunch at a restaurant near St Peter's before catching a taxi to Fiumicino Airport. Having ordered and settled down to reading Peter Kreeft's Ecumenical Jihad, I noticed a Bishop come in, also on his own. I nodded politely and we both continued with our reading and repast.

After lunch, he came over and introduce himself, complimented me on my choice of reading and left. Shortly after, when I asked the waiter for the bill, he told me that the Bishop had paid it.

So thanks very much indeed, My Lord, and may God bless you for your kindness.
