I Stand With Francis

Along with about 10,000 others. I'd rather sit, but lottery enterers can't be choosers.

Of all the public events during this papal visit, the Canonization Mass is the one I most wanted to attend. Blessed Junipero has been a patron of mine since I visited his shrine and prayed at his tomb twenty years ago. I haven't been an exceptionally devoted devotee, but fortunately patron saints can't be choosers, either.
