My visit with Pope Benedict XVI

On May 25, 2011 I presented Pope Benedict XVI with two thick volumes about the life of
Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen called the "Positio"

The Holy father told me something I hadn't known.  He told me that he worked on the commission for mission at the Second Vatican Council with Fulton Sheen.
Raymond Cardinal Burke, head of the Apostolic Signatura and a supporter of the Cause for Canonization of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen preached during a Mass of Thanksgiving after the handing in of the Positio.  In this picture I am enjoying a stroll towards dinner.
