Only for the Pope (or Ex-Pope)
…would I stand in the middle of an insanely large crowd for three hours. (I have claustrophobia and mild agoraphobia, so I won’t put myself in a crowded space like that for any movie or rock star. I might’ve for Steve Jobs, but it’s too late now.) Anyway, I think I will miss Benedict XVI. He’s no JPII, but he was doing the best he could with all the issues he faced.
I even went to confession for the first time in over 15 years in Basilica Papale di San Pietro. The priest was very understanding and went easy on me.
