Sleep well, Papa!

    It made me think of Our Lord’s Ascension, with the Apostles staring up into the sky, and the song that came into my mind was the one traditionally played at Hispanic weddings when the bride and groom are making their good-byes: “Las Golondrinas.”

    I’m going to miss my beloved, introverted, bookish Holy Father more than I can say.
