Washington, D.C.

I am now in Washington, D.C., where the plan is for us to attend the Papal Mass at Nationals Park tomorrow (really later this morning).

In the evening, I'll be breaking bread with a few fellow alums of the National Catholic Student Coalition -- we'll be getting together at 7 p.m. at "America," the restaurant at D.C.'s Union Station. (Please join us if you're local!)

For what Sully today called the best coverage of B16's apostolic journey to the United States, go to Whispers in the Loggia.

I think Amy is doing a nice job, too, over at Charlotte was Both. In the midst of it all, I was glad to see her post remembering today's first anniversary of the tragedy at Virginia Tech.

For excellent analysis of what the Pope is saying, also check out The Anchoress.

And, so as not to be totally scooped by the independent bloggers, The New York Times has started a blog dedicated to the visit. It includes posts from several folks including Fr. Jim Martin, S.J.
