One year ago

Speaking of beatifications and canonizations, a year ago I was standing in the midst of a million people in St. Peter's Square, eyes glued to the Jumbo Tron to watch Papa John Paul II become, "Blessed."  It was certainly an adventure to manage to arrive in Rome, stand all night long in the chaotic "line" to enter the Square, and to be there when Pope Benedict XVI's declaration of the beatification was met with minutes and minutes of cheering, applause, smiles and tears.

It's definitely a gift to our Church to have the intercession of Bl. John Paul II.
