Cathedral Steps

Today, along with other young adult parishioners of the Church of St. Paul the Apostle in NYC, I stood on the steps of St. Patrick's Cathedral before, during and after the Papal Mass there.

We waved to the Holy Father as he travelled in the popemobile north on Fifth Avenue (after his post-Mass lunch at the Cardinal's residence).

Chang W. Lee of The New York Times captured this shot of the moment:

I'm in the white shirt on the top step. Here's my camera phone pic of almost the same moment:

Here are some shots from earlier in the day:

(Some other YAs from church: Paula, Jeff and Allison.)

(With the glare of TV lights across Fifth Avenue, a Missionary of Charity sister waits for B16.)
