I work a block from St. Patrick’s Cathedral so this was one of the most historic days in the city and St. Patrick’s history. Pope Francis has brought energy to a religion many feel is out of touch with society. Humble, Caring, true Servant of the Servant of God, he eschews the pomp of the position and instead of mixing with the powerful whose voices are heard, he seeks out those who are underrepresented and disadvantaged. A truly good man.
From one of my office windows, I was able to snap a few pictures of his arrival to St. Patrick’s Cathedral for mass on Thursday evening. I felt so lucky to have witnessed it from afar. I hope these pictures bring happiness to those who see them as they do for me.
