Beatification!

by Steve Ray on May 1, 2011

It was beautiful weather and a great day! Everyone was very happy and joyful even though 1.5 million crowded around St. Peters. Hope you enjoy the video and our pilgrims’ comments and below, my run through the event trying to get as close as I could.

Recollections on JPII

by Steve Ray on May 1, 2011

pope.john.paul.II.praysOne Day John Paul II returned ill from the hospital and his attendants were told he was to stay in bed for several days. In the morning they came to his room and found him missing — he was not in his bed.

They searched the apartment and found the Pope deep in prayer in the chapel. They said, “Holy Father, the doctors ordered you to stay in bed. We areĀ  concerned for Your Holiness.”

The Pope responded, “I too am concerned for my holiness!”

And this is the kind of thing that made John Paul the Great a Saint.

Close as I Can Get

by Steve Ray on May 1, 2011

Ran from our hotel to St. Peter’s. Streets blocked, wall-to-wall people. As close as I can get without pushing and taking an hour or more to weave thru wall to wall people. I can hear the Mass over the loud speakers. Many of our group are up close!

Only the Catholic Church could pull this off. Thanks be to Our Lord Jesus Christ for His Church on earth. More later including YouTube video.
