I have formed a Papal Committee this month, to prepare for Pope Benedict’s visit to America in April of 2008. Perhaps interested parties may volunteer their support in whatever way they can do to help.
When Joseph asked my thoughts via email, I suggested that it might be good if the Pope met with the poor as well as with influential people. Perhaps Catholic Charities could help set up some site visits. Jesus went among sinners, publicans, and tax collectors. I hope the Holy Father will not be offended that we Dumpster Dwellers (respectfully) discuss his visit here. For the sake of the discussion let us assume that both Joseph and Pope Benedict are on the up and up.
