Interesting. It reminded me of something that happened during Pope Benedict’s visit to the US. A number of us arrived at Nationals’ Park in DC at 4:00 AM on the day of his Mass. There was a Mass at that time where 45,000 hosts were consecrated to be distributed at the Mass. We took ciboria to various rooms all over the stadium and were to stay with Our Lord until it was time for Communion. Around the corner from our room, there was another one that had been prepared as a vestment room for clergy from other religions who had been invited to the Mass. Suddenly, mid-morning, this group of people barged into our room and, before we could react, started to place their garment bags and other things on the table next to the ciboria. Most of them did not speak English which complicated things as we got them to pick up their things and led them to the right location. After they were gone, we started to wonder how, these individuals who have dedicated their lives to seek God, they would probably never realize how close they were to Him on that day.

I typed in my comment but couldn’t read the little scrambled word thingy. After pressing “post” I was told that I didn’t type it correctly and my comment dissapeared.
So, I guess my comment isn’t wanted?
Forget it.
