Receiving a Special Blessing from Pope Benedict XVI
Earlier this week, a Canadian news service, CBC News, requested stories and photos of people meeting or seeing the pope. Given my sister has seen the Holy Father twice, I sent the link her way. She submitted a few photos to them, and the folks at CBC News liked what they saw. They then asked her to submit a full post. Wait ... why didn't I ask her to write this for us first?! HELLO! Five days since Papa Benedicto XVI announced his resignation, and we still haven't written a thing about it here. Some "practicing Catholics" we are, huh? Disclosure: We never claimed to be smart or opportunist practicing Catholics. Head over here and read my sis's post about her Pope Benedict encounters. Oh, and you must read to the very end. Some cool news for my family!
