Pope Day 3
Pope Day 3 has been a long day. It started with Mass with the friars at 8:00 then Roll Call and a Prayer with the Public Safety Officers at 8:30. Then I walked around Campus for a while. At 11:00 AM I went with some students to get my yellow fever vaccination. We were late for the appointment because we could not get across Pennsylvania Ave, guess who was coming. I have never seen Washington so excited.
Back on campus I got into my habit and went to the CUA Mall where there was a crowd of 8000 people waiting to see the Pope.. It was incredible there is certainly a real case of Pope fever around here.
Tonight we had a prayer vigil with all night adoration. Incredible.
I'm going to bed tomorrow the Pope comes to visit us.
