As some of you know, I have not been participating on Intentional Disciples recently, too busy getting ready for, and then on, my trip to Rome for the audience with Pope Benedict for the 25th anniversary of the pontifical recognition of the Fraternity of Communion and Liberation.

Well, some plane difficulties have me stuck in Paris rather than on my way to Chicago. (I'll save you the complaints. Despite being confined on a practical level to one of those hotel airports that frankly look the same, whether you are in Kansas City or Paris, I have a tough time complaining about missing another day's work and getting a chance to test how well I remember French. Of course, that assumes the kind people at this hotel bother to give me the chance. I'm thankful, but can't help being a little disappointed when they switch to English at the first sight of that blue cover of the passport.)

So, with that, I don't have access to the 800 pictures -- aren't digital cameras and gigs of memory great! -- or the audio of the audience, most of all I will spare Intentional Disciples readers by posting over at Integrity. But I thought some might be interested in the Pope's address, which Fred of Deep Furrows has posted here. And if you happened to see the EWTN coverage of the event, and somehow spotted a blue poncho in the sea of ponchos and umbrellas covering the thousands gathered in St. Peter's Square, about four or five rows back in the section just below the statue of St. Paul on the right-side of the steps to the Basilica, then you spotted me. I'll be amazed if that's true.

If your reservations involved sleeper accommodations (Amtrak's First Class on their long-distance overnight trains) on either your late-arriving train or your missed connection, you will get a hotel voucher for the unplanned overnight stay. Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time. A major Amtrak line in regular daily use by Americans is the Acela Express line, running between Boston and Washington, D. Financial and managerial accounting principles.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew. I don't see any change and am now having to make the hard decisions for my own life, which don't include any of the ongoing drama.
