A Morning Vigil
The Sala Stampa site is inaccessible, for obvious reasons. But what's more important is that if the press keeps blowing crucial details of context -- i.e. is the Anointing of the Sick or Viaticum being implied when using the term "the last rites" (I've learned it was the latter, but no reporter could tell me that) -- the pope's death will be a disaster when it comes to being clear and well-informed for a public which is fixated on promulgating the Gnostic gospels.
In the event of a conclave, I will remain in Philly and be available to press from my home base.
Again, my e.mail address is email@example.com -- be in touch, and not sparingly. More as we find out what's up.....
Pray for the Pope.
