I’m really excited about the Holy Father’s visit! The Vicar of Christ on earth, who tends the Flock entrusted to him by none other then the Good Shepherd. The successor of St. Peter comes to the USA to proclaim the Kingdom of God. I can hardly believe that we’ll be seeing him live at Nationals Park!

I believe that he comes to “strengthen the brethren” and further the “New Springtime” of the Church. We truly need Pope Benedict’s visit to our country, fittingly he comes to the Nation’s Capital. The theme for the visit is Christ Our Hope. Indeed, he comes as the visible representation of Christ Our Hope!
