Pope in the Bronx!

What a blessing! Pope Benedict XVI is coming to the US in April. When I heard he would be saying 2 public masses I was excited. One would be in Washington and one at Yankee Stadium. I knew Yankee stadium would be awesome! My 2 great loves converging! Most of the tickets go to local parishes so I didn't think I had a chance. I asked my buddy Nathan who lives near Washington to see if he could get tickets for the Washington mass.

On a whim I called the Diocese of Rochester to see if they had any tickets. They didn't and I signed up for the waiting list. Then I asked my mom to check with SS Peter and Paul which is a Byzantine Catholic church. She forgot on a Friday but Saturday in the bulletin Father Mike was looking to see if anyone wanted to go to Yankee Stadium to see the Pope say mass! Heck yeah!!! So I called and along with Sarah and her parents are going in April. I am soo excited.

More updates to follow!
