Rev. Mr. Chris
The title of this blog is a nod to two (or would it be three?) converging presences in my life:
- My two older brothers, Rick & Larry gave me the nick-name “Mr. Chris” many years ago.
- The honorific for a deacon is “Rev. Mr. ___________”
So, upon completing my diaconate formation and receiving the Sacrament of Holy Orders, my family and close friends simply extended the nick-name to “Rev. Mr. Chris.”
Here’s my favorite photo of the day I went from Mr. Chris to Rev. Mr. Chris:
