“How is God everywhere every second?” The response: “Because he is God.”
“What’s your favorite ‘Star Wars’ character?” The response: Hans Solo. [I'm sure Bishop got it right, but writer may be too influenced by the German culture] Incidentally, Callahan has seen the original “Star Wars’ film 11 times.
“Have you ever met anyone famous?” The response: Yes. “I’ve met Pope Francis. I’ve met Pope Benedict. I’ve met Pope John Paul II.”
“How much coffee do you drink a day? The response: “I probably drink at least 10 cups of coffee a day.”
“Do you like bubbles?” The response: Of course. “I like bubbles. Bubbles are fun.”
Callahan of the La Crosse Diocese took each question in stride at McDonell Central Catholic High School in Chippewa Falls in three sessions from K-12 students from Boyd, Bloomer, Chippewa Falls and Tilden. He also celebrated a Mass at the school as a part of Catholic Schools Week.
