Springtime for Benedict...

I, like so many other Roman Catholics, am anxiously waiting April 15th this year... NOT for the Tax deadline, oh no. A Papal visit from our dear Benedict the XVI! As luck would have it, I may just be in town (Washington) during his visit! I don't know if I'm brave enough to try and tackle DC streets during his visit, which are bad on a good day. But just knowing the Pope will be within 20 miles of where I'll be seems unreal! If I'm able to score some tickets to Nationals stadium or even better the Basilica, I'll try to go. I may just hang out at the Baltimore Basilica and see if he makes a surprise visit like Pope John Paul II did years ago! Either way, I am very excited to see how his trip unfolds!
