Singing For The Pope

Excellent news via email confirmation: the two Eldest Weeds are singing for the Pope at Nationals Stadium when he comes (I tried to find a picture of the Pope covering his ears, but this --link is to the credit-- is as close as I got). Great for the kids, but the really beauty part is, a parent/guardian will get a ticket too. Which is delightful, since the tickets will be distributed by parish, largely by lottery, with --unaccountably-- no preference given to parishioners who are unabashed Pope groupies who adore the man, know everything about him down to his soft drink and Christmas cookie preferences, have read every word he's ever published in English, and hang on his every word, glance and movement. Not that we know anyone like that.
