We’re Off to Rio!



Mark and I are at Dulles International Airport, ready to head to Rio. We just had a chance to interview some pilgrims also headed to World Youth Day before boarding the flight. We also got to meet Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia! Here I am with a group of pilgrims and seminarians from Erie, Pennsylvania, holding a Busted Halo beach ball that we will handing out at WYD. And now, we’ve gotta run before we miss the flight!
