Spending the day with Pope Benedict #happy365 H365/44, a photo by Jenelle Blevins on Flickr.
What a day!
We left Domus at 7.30, we were in the line for the Papal Audience at 8.00. We were in the hall for the Audience at 8.30. Pope Benedict started his audience at 10:30. We left the hall at about 11:50. By 12.40pm we were back in another line. This time at St Peter’s, where we lined up for the Ash Wednesday Mass. We were at the front of the line. We stood there until 3.30. We were sitting in our seats in Basilica by 3.45. Mass started at 5.00. We waved goodbye to our darling Pope at 7:00. We were on the bus by 7:20.
As well as exhausted, we feel incredibly blessed beyond what any words can describe. I am so glad we got to experience this together and say goodbye to Papa Benedetto.
