Quote of the day

"I wish I could capture this little man's smile at the end of the Mass.

"In the field where so many ghosts are said to inhabit, and where so many dreams have come true, it's almost as if the Pope has finally shed the spectre of John Paul II, and fulfilled some childhood dream.

"You know there can never be a piece about New York without those words, "If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere" rabble-rousing their way unto it.

"But it's true.

"There are many United States of Americas. Most are not Catholic, most are not even religious.

"But in this one place and time, people in this stadium are bursting forth with a simple, and may I say, very palpable feeling of joy at being Catholic."
