I honestly don’t know where to begin when it comes to reflecting on this past week. So much of it feels like a dream. But then my feet hurt and I remember that it was all very real.
It’s hard to believe the week is over. Learning from Cardinals, Church leaders, and other Catholic celebrities and just taking in the joy of thousands of families all week, and then capping it off with the papal visit to Philadelphia … it’s just hard to believe it’s over.
Seeing the Popemobile on American city streets was surreal.
…And then he stops and kisses your friend’s baby. And the 8 1/2 hours of waiting on the side of the road is all worth it.
More later, folks. Although that was the high point right there.
