Jesus liked Nathanael!   "Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no deceit!"   John 1:48  I remember Bishop May of St Louis when he was alive would go out of his way to pass on a compliment he heard about you.  As a young priest this meant a great deal to me.  It was an assurance of a gift from God and a shared joy of recognition.
