James Higgins, 7, has been attending daily Mass since he was 3. His parents, Stephen and Lauren, never have to drag him out of bed or away from playthings, either.
“I have it in my heart to go,” said James, decked out in a blue sweat suit, a Red Sox jacket and cap.
He said he’s undecided between a career with the Red Sox or as the first American pope. But given this boy’s encyclopedic knowledge of the church, the safe money is on the Vatican job.
