  • I saw that on the news as well. I am not sure the question was ever answered why she jumped on him. I know he was dragged to the ground so it was not a quick hug.

    Did your grandmother go to Rome Ryansmom or a Mass when he visited.

  • eringobrough, did you go to one at church? I remember seeing one that was at ball stadium. I wonder what it would be like to attend Mass in a stadium. The crowd and responses would be GREAT!!!

  • I went to the one at the ball stadium - the crowd response was amazing! It was such a feeling of unity.
