I think Sissie is as excited about the Pope's visit to the U.S. as I am, which is MUCHO MUCHO MUCHO. She's got an excellent blog post up, lots of links, great quotes ("If you want to avoid turbulence, you have to stay at home"), and another photo of Papa Ratzi wearing his Saturno hat.
The beloved Pope Benedict will be celebrating Mass at Yankee Stadium in only two weeks from tomorrow!! I got my ticket! His birthday, by the way, is April 16 (he'll be 81).
