South Georgia priest visits D.C. to see Pope

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WALB) - A future priest from here in South Georgia says we can all learn something from Pope Francis.

Patrick McCain graduated from Colquitt County High School in 2004.
He now attends St. Vincent de Paul Seminary in Florida.

He and his classmates flew to Washington for this afternoon's mass at Catholic University.
I talked to him through facetime tonight as he walked along a D.C. street.
He hopes everyone takes away a positive message from the Pope's visit.

"This message of solidarity and mercy of really seeking to serve our neighbors, that's not a message that Catholics or Christians have a monopoly on," said Patrick McCain, Seminarian. "His message is for all of us."

McCain says Pope Francis sets a good example for priests and seminarians like him teaching them to be merciful, just, loving, and compassionate.
