Brad – “Awesome….if I just jumped, I could have touched him”
Zach – “I would have poked him, but I wouldn’t want to get struck by lightning”
Rigg – “The Pope mobile was amazing….I want one”
Nick – “Loved his sombrero, red cowboy hat thing”
Just an hour ago, we had an audience with the Pope. The Scouts were very close….as a matter of fact, we were in the main section…on the same level as the Pope….Awesome exerience. Various Bishops from all over welcome pilgrims in their own language from all over…then the Pope blesses everyone and all objects they bring for blessings…and yes, for those who bought the Scout fundraising items and asked for them to be blessed, they all were! We gave our gift to a Swiss Guard, who in turn gave it to the Pontiff…The Pope will surly understand Aloha!
