I wish I could be there. It's wonderful that the Vatican and the Church is honoring the memory of so great a Pope.
I remember not too long ago when just the name "Pius XII", was something/someone to be highly ashamed/embarassed about according to progressive Catholics. Not only for his "supposed" inaction to help Jews during WW II, but also for the style of his Papacy and the visual aspect of the Masses he celebrated.
I think with Pope Benedict XVI and a generation of younger priests, we are now more in a position to celebrate, applaude, and defend vigorously the life and work of this great Pope.
And before too long, I think we will also be able to witness his beatification and canonization officially as a Saint of the Church.
Something all of us already know that he is.
