Who's making the trip?

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.

Fr. S,

Have a great and safe trip. Please pass on our respects to the Pope. Tell the Holy Father to keep up the great job and that we are praying for him.

Also, tell his staff that if they plan another trip to the USA, he should skip DC and NYC and come to Cincinnati instead. :-)

Fr. S;

Say a few prayers while you are there for me, I am having my thyroid removed July 1.

I am a Xavier student, and we're studying abroad in Rome. Is there anyway we can meet with the Archbishop before or after he receives the pallium?
