The Vatican Information Service Blog has released the names of the 38 metropolitan archbishops who will be receiving the pallium at Mass with the Holy Father on the Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul next week. It will truly be an experience of the universal Church, with reps from all five continents.
On the list are three Americans:
Archbishop Listecki of Milwaukee
Archbishop Wenski of Miami and
Archbishop Schnurr of Cincinnati
(There might be some joke about two Poles and a German going to the Eternal City, but I'm not sure....)
Ok, I am officially getting rev'ed up to go, and working this week is becoming increasingly difficult.
