...go read this mom's blog post and admire those beautiful pictures and that once in a lifetime memory.
I told Jessica in the combox below that I hadn't yet cried about the Holy Father's resignation, but those pictures did me in. A priest friend of ours who is studying in Rome first shared the Vatican Radio picture on FB this morning with the added information that the little boy's name is John Paul. Oh. My. Heart. I know! Tomorrow is going to be a rough day for Catholics everywhere. As much as I am thrilled that Pope Benedict will get to retire, we are sure going to miss him.
