Well that was disappointing... We had front row spots, perfect location for the new Pope to come out of the balcony and ... BLACK SMOKE
The bizarre thing was the number of media outlets that were shooting us for three hours. We were praying the rosary (it is a pilgrimage after all). And after announcing the first mystery I had to open my eyes because I started hearing photographers and camera men surrounding us like they never saw someone praying in St Peters Square before (haha). The cool thing though was that me and a bunch of pilgrims got interviewed again.
We're off to 2 major basilicas this afternoon - St. Mary Major and St. Paul's outside the walls to visit, pray, celebrate Mass that hopefully tonight we'll be seeing white smoke!
Love and prayers to all of you for your kind notes and messages. It's really an amazing experience. If you find links of our interviews on CBS, ABC, NBC or Fox, my fellow pilgrims and I would love to see them. thanks!
