Do you remember your senior superlatives? Half the fun was finding out who would get voted “Best dressed” or “Most likely to skip class.” It’s fun to look back at the various “awards” and remember those heady days of high school.
In that vein, I though it would be fun to look at a few of Catholicism’s Senior Superlative Awards!
