Mass in D.C.

The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception on the campus of The Catholic University of Ameria hosted Pope Benedict for evening prayers yesterday and I attended mass this morning in the same chapel. As an unexpected souvenir of my visit, I found the program from the Evening Prayer service left by Cardinal George from the Archdiocese of Chicago.

Deacon Mike Byrne, St. John Neumann, is in route back to Chinatown from the papal mass at Washington Nationals stadium where he was honored to participate in the mass by distributing Holy Communion. Mike was interviewed by Cox News after the mass and his comments should air on TV 2 in Atlanta this evening.
