Politics Daily reports on an item that slipped the international gaggle of reporters when First Lady Michelle Obama and daugther Sasha traveled in Spain - namely that Barack Obama carries a picture of the Blessed Virgin Mary in his wallet. This is more than one would expect many Catholics to have on his person.
Somehow this slipped past the Disputations filter, but during her vacation in Spain in August, First Lady Michelle Obama revealed that her husband -- a.k.a. President Obama -- "always carries a picture of Mary Help of Christians in his wallet."
Mary Help of Christians is the patroness of the Salesian order of priests and nuns, and during an Aug. 13 visit to the Spanish city of Ronda with her daughter, Sasha, the first lady stopped at the Salesian community there.
