Pope Francis is a Christian celebrity, a rock star unseen in the Catholic world since maybe the days Innocent XII, who was also known for his tremendous benevolence.
So what do you do when you have a celebrity in your midst, one you can’t wait to see?
Well, like a big football game, or the 1989 tour’s stop in your city, you start early. You tailgate. Like these nuns, who tailgated before the Pope’s mass at St. Matthew’s Cathedral in D.C. today.
