It was all about religion for Brother Paul. The 91-year-old Franciscan monk, who has had multiple sclerosis for 65 years, said he was looking forward to rest after church.
“Of course, I do a lot of praying, but what I mean to say is it’s in a restful way.”
Brother Paul has attended Christmas mass at the Catholic church for almost 35 years, he said. “I like the regular schedule and the routine, you know. The regular routine is so important in religious life.”
