I was disappointed that my protestant friends paid so little attention to the visit.
Personally from this distance (France) the American visit was the more successful and impressive, and the American welcome more whole hearted than the Australian. They seemed to forget that he was there specifically for WYD and not to the country in the same way as to the US.
One thing that did blight the US trip for me, articularly in view of all the recent Pelosi stuff, was the giving of Communion to public figures who are openly pro-abortion. One's views on that issue are not relevant, but the Pope's are. Did he really knowingly agree to these people receiving at his Mass? Or wasn't he aware of it? Any ideas?
I'm about to embark on 'The Spirit of the Liturgy' Have you read it by any chance?
"There is no doubt that the word of “Christ Our Hope” has been delivered with uncompromised clarity and persuasiveness. Benedict did what good pastors do. He encouraged, taught, and, where necessary, corrected. It was by any pertinent measure a triumph. The papal week that was, I feel confident, will continue to be with us for a very long time."
