A few last minute posts before I leave very early tomorrow for Detroit.

Here's a wonderful anecdote from Cardinal Suenen's Memories & Hopes about Pope John Paul II on the day of his inaugural Mass as Pope:

""The day of the inauguration was a great day indeed. The Pope exudes an air of faith and of power. I feel that God himself has chosen him for us, for no one has more spirit than the Holy Spirit. He will be a man for new times; a man of bold decisions, not routine ones, one who will go beyond muffled diplomacy, facing into the wind and even into the storm.

'He will need to be strong at the helm and very weak in prayer before God. One of his fellow students in Rome, Paul de Haes, used to say that the intensity of his prayer "is enough to make you jealous". He prays with his whole body - he is an incarnation of prayer - and at those moments he looks years older. He bows deeply, bending close to the ground; in the Sistine Chapel, during his prayer of thanksgiving, he looked as though he had collapsed, and I feared that he had been taken ill. But as soon as he stands up straight and smiles, he looks amazingly young."

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.
