Papal Mass Excitment

This is an exciting week on the East Coast. Pope Benedict comes to America and some lucky relatives get to attend the Papal Mass at Nationals Stadium. My son will be an adult chaperone for a dozen teenagers, including his oldest daughter, as they take the train from northern Maryland to attend the Mass.

Benedict has proven to be a great compliment to the charisma of his predecesor in his calm and pastoral manner and his rational speaches and books. His encyclicals on Love and Hope has attracted a wide readership just based on comment from non-Catholic pastors and friends. During my lifetime the Church has been blessed with outstanding leadership.
