Kenyan-born Franciscan Friar who was voted world’s best teacher in March 2019 had the opportunity to meet Pope Francis at the Vatican Wednesday, January 8 during which the two shared mutual prayer intentions.
The Franciscan Friar, Br. Peter Tabichi, took to his Twitter account, disclosing the encounter he had just had with the Holy Father.
“During the meeting at Santa Marta in Rome he (Pope Francis) told me, ‘Pray for me, brother!’ I too replied, ‘Pray for us and all the teachers’,” the Franciscan Friar Twitted.
In the Tweet, the 38-year-old Religious Brother said he “was inspired by the great humility of” the Holy Father and later shared with ACI Prensa how impressed he was with the attention and humility of the Holy Father toward him.
According to a report, the Holy Father and the Franciscan friar “held discussions over the role of the teacher in society.”
