Dear Mary

Thank you for your nice email. I didn’t see the Pope. St. Patrick’s was really reserved for the 2,500 clergy.
I also didn’t think I could stand for 4 hours in Central Park before he rode by. I was glad that I didn’t do that. The crowd was very cramped.

I’m so glad Francis came. He did do good in the city. I think he’s very complicated. I have been attending some Fordham University Lectures on him to understand him better.

I wish you, Dan and your children and grandchildren all the happiness in the world. I know that now and the future will bring you some of the best days of your life.
With All of my Love
