I hope you all found a place to unite your prayers with Pope Francis and millions of Catholics. It was a scramble in Boston, but she/he who knocks shall have the doors opened! All of your intentions were lifted in prayer.
It was quite powerful.
I watched a movie this weekend on John Paul II and was again reminded how similar in personality and charism Pope Francis is to Blessed John Paul II. The fall of Poland to the communists, the game plan for getting through the hate and murdering dictators refined +JPII like gold. He was able save lives and guide many Catholics through the crucible to their sanctity. In spite of everything.
The Holy Spirit is always so far ahead of the game, our shortsightedness is no competition.
