Could any other day come so close to the joy of Easter? Our beloved BLESSED (which means he is one step away from being canonized SAINT) John Paul II was made so today, in St. Peter's Square with over a million people in attendance!! Today is the feast of God's mercy... his "unfathomable divine mercy" poured forth from His wounded side. Praise God!!
My only sadness? I bet the number of people who got up to watch his beatification on tv at 4 this morning didn't come close to the number of those who woke to watch the wedding (which I did neither... just sayin). Sounds a bit like Princes Dianna's funeral and Mother's Theresa's funeral which was a week later... sound familiar?
