An open letter to Pope Francis…

Dear Pope Francis,

My name is Bro. Brian Zampier. I am a Marianist brother and artist. For the past 10 years I have been an assitant to a wonderful Marianist artist — Bro. Mel Meyer — who died on October 12 (the Feast of Our Lady of the Pillar) at the age of 85.

For Bro. Mel’s obituary in the St. Louis Post Dispatch, click here.

For a wonderful article about Bro. Mel by Rev. Travis Scholl, click here.

I am writing you to show you one of Bro. Mel’s recent works — his “Pope Francis Chair”… 

4.Mem cove alph.Pope Francis chair
We are saving it at Marianist Galleries in St. Louis, Missouri so you may sit in it when you visit the United States!

Know of my prayers for you.

Love, Bro. A. Brian Zampier, SM
