Had a great time in Central Park with my old friend Alice to get a glimpse of Pope Francis. We arrived at 11:00 am. We walked slowly to get into Central Park which took 3 hours. We were tens of thousands of people with the same goal in mind. We made it into the park by 2:30 and then we found a place where we could see him pass by after 5:00. Was it worth it? Of course! We connected with so many people around us. People who were Catholic and those who were not. There is something special about Pope Francis that transcends religion and beliefs.
