Card. Burke did show, today. He did not have even the slightest hint of flu, Argentinian or other.
Before Mass, messages were read from Benedict XVI and from the Secretary of State on behalf of Pope Francis. Benedict’s was essentially what we heard before, namely, that he was with us spiritually. However, that’s all we heard in English and French. The Italian version was a little different. It included a paragraph about his monastic life, which didn’t allow for him to go out from the convent where he resides. I found that interesting. Yesterday evening, someone mentioned to me that Benedict doesn’t leave his place unless specifically invited by the Pope.
After Mass Card. Burke was pretty much mobbed.
Just for nice: one of my favorite altars in St. Peter’s.
Time for a quick supper at a favorite place, happily near where I am staying.
