I am finally getting around to posting keychains acquired on my trip. I got this one outside the Vatican and I selected it because I loved Mama Wolf suckling Romulus and Remus. I always wondered what the world would be like if Remus had had the opportunity to name the city Reme in his honor instead. I digress.
It was really cool being present at the canonization Mass of St. Teresa of Calcutta. It fulfilled a life long dream and I never ever thought I would be there for such a big name saint! Free prayer cards were handed out which was a nice touch.
And yes, yes, YES! I saw the Pope ride the popemobile about 15 feet away from little old me. It was so amazing but all I found myself thinking at the time was how good his pores looked. I know, the random things you think at big moments of your life. Here was the picture on my camera from when he came around the bend. I missed him giving the thumbs up but am just impressed to have such a good picture of him at all!
It was a really amazing experience that words fail to truly describe.
