As you know, the American Cardinals love showing up in Rome. Love, love, love it.

This time of year, a good number of dicasteries aid and abet this a bit by holding their final major meetings before the summer exodus, which adds an extra "oomph" to the Peter and Paul celebrations.

Well, they're back again. Here are Cardinals William Keeler of Baltimore and Edward Egan of New York at yesterday's General Audience. Also on the dais were Cardinals Roger Mahony of Los Angeles and the archbishop-emeritus of Washington, Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, in town to see his successor get his pallium before leaving for Moscow and the delegation to the Orthodox Patriarchate.
