We have a lot of interest in this pilgrimage, so once we announce sales, make sure we have your contact info via http://tinyurl.com/cr-phillybus. We will use that contact list and social media to announce when ticket sales open.

The bus trip should cost no more than $99, and will include bottled water, a special commemorative rosary and more. Once we have all the details about the schedule, we will announce the pricing and ticket sales. We may also offer an option to take Amtrak to the Mass, but that will cost more.

This is the day!

A dawn of a new day and throngs are heading to St. Peter's Square. Singing, waving flags and generally being tolerant of the direction of the gendarmes and carabinieri who point the way. Some try for a short cut, only to be pointed back the way they came when they hit another blocked street.

From my vantage point now, on top of the collonade -- Bernini's great colmns shaped like "arms" that embrace Piazza San Pietro -- the Square and Via della Conciliazzione are filling up in anticipation of the 10 am Mass, two and a half hours from now.
