You know I gotta, mold you something proper/ go to Catholic college learn the faith and tell ya’ mamma/ go and tell ya’ papa the Pope’s a show stopper! – D-Major
There is a great feeling of enthusiasm over the Pope’s visit to the USA–from not just Catholics! From the Washington Metro issuing special Papal Mass all-day rail passes… to mainstream news coverage… to the President and the White House… even Sen. Obama issues a statement to welcome the Pope!
As for Catholics:
Rocco at Whispers from the Loggia has a post encouraging bells to be rung at 4:00pm EST when Pope Benedict touches down at Andrews AFB.
Peggy Noonan has written another excellent article “Something Beautiful Has Begun” in The Wall Street Journal.
