Yeah! He's here, he's here!

We had a Pope Party on a budget. It included grilled burgers, corn-on-the-cob(roasted on the grill), orange kool-aid and orange cake. My son knows his favorite drink is Orange Fanta so we did an orange theme. The kids cleaned the kitchen, we are watching a re-broadcast of his arrival on EWTN and then will sing happy birthday to the Holy Father. Hopefully, he won't be able to hear us. My spirit is lifted from the daily stress of living one-day-at-a-time, not knowing what the future brings. Thank you, dear Holy Father, for blessing us with your presence. I love my Catholic faith and the Church. He is my hero.

I agree and even offered a rosary up for him between customers at work. He does bring hope to the Church and to those who see his work as a push in the right direction. A push away from liberalism and pluralism (of faiths) to true and perfect Catholicism. Tell your wonderful son that orange drink is one of my favorites. I hope you all enjoy the rebroadcast of the arrival.

I'm going to have to remember your idea for a Papal Party for when Raffaele is older.
