Of Interest to NACophiles...

The Pope will celebrate Immaculate Conception next Thursday morning with Mass at 9.30 in St. Peter's. It's also the 40th anniversary of the close of Vatican II, so you can expect a thing or two in the homily about that.

But anyways, given the role of the IC as patroness of the United States, all the deacons and servers will be provided by the Pontifical North American College. And there are many happy boys on the Gianicolo today as the lottery results indicating who'd get the chance to serve a papal mass have been announced.... Congrats to the winners.
