In these days after the Beatification, every time I refer to it I use the term "grace-filled." Being at the center of the planning and the celebration itself, the actual celebration of the Beatification was almost like an out of body experience: it seemed so peaceful, beautiful, uplifting - and after so many years of working for it almost unreal to realize it was actually happening.
It was not until Sunday night, after taking visitors to the airport and finally getting a chance to look at some of the pictures and videos on social media that it all really hit me. We have lived through a weekend of grace that even the downpour of rain could not detain!
