Archbishop what is your EDC?

 EDC = Every Day Carry


My EDC varies a little if I wear civilian clothes or a cleric.

The difference is that the clothes cross. A crucifix or the Tau of St. Francis.

On the skin, I wear:

  1. The St Francis brown scapular (Mt Carmel)
  2. Nuestra Señora de la Altagracia Medal from The Dominican Republic
  3. Marie-Anne Blondin Medal from St Jerome
  4. Catherine Labouré miraculous Medal from Italy
  5. St Francis wooden Tau over my cloth

On my pans belt, I carry:

In my pockets, I carry:

One mini light, business cards, and a cutting blade knife

A very old wallet, car device, mini light, house key, fish & seafood allergic warning and

The Archangel St Michael and a police medal, the heart is another seafood allergy medal.

The RT. Revd. Marie wear:

  1. Catherine Labouré miraculous Medal from Italy
  2. Marie-Anne Blondin Medal from St Jerome
  3. A cross (Marie is a Baptist Minister)
  4. A heart from me and
  5. A Mom from our son Chad

This is the reverse of the medals #1 and #2; they are real.

Over my Cleric clothes:

A large metal Tau                                      or                       A large crucifix
