The Holy Father in New York City

This was an emotional day for me. I cried several times from sheer joy. I can't get over how moving it is having the Holy Father in the United States.

The 911 Memorial service this morning was amazing. I was sobbing when the children sang "Let There Be Peace On Earth," as I'm sure many others did, as well.

And it felt like I was there for the mass at Madison Square Garden. I loved his Homily, based on one of my favorite Bible verses.

On has to marvel at his energy and strength! He must be exhausted, dealing with jet lag and his unbelievably busy schedule (to say nothing of his age). Anyway, all of his appearances today were impressive. He was so delightful at the Harlem school he visited! He's just wonderful with children. With everyone, actually.

Marilyn came home for lunch. I made her soup and toasted cheese sands. We had (store bought) burritos for dinner.

Tomorrow I'll go run the front desk and greet the people coming by for interviews. Marilyn will be managing Nominating -- I think she said there were seven (!!!) interviews.

We hope to get done in time to go to Rich and Merlin's barbecue reception after their wedding (which we're unable to attend because of work).

On the negative side, I'm still dealing with issues from upgrading to IOS 9.0.1 -- and having constant crashing. Plus it just 'disappears' and has to be restarted! Not sure why. This was supposed to fix the issues with IOS 9, but obviously it didn't!!!

I'm heading to bed now. Good night!
