We are all at the gate after going through customs. I was glad to see they cleared us for entry to the United States so we don’t have to go through Newark. We have quite a long layover in Newark. I am going to walk all around the airport to get my legs stretched out for the nearly 6 hour trip back to Seattle.
While walking to the US Customs area, I bumped into Sr. Briege McKenna. I introduced myself to her and told her I was in attendance at the International Retreat for Priests in Ars, France in 2005. She told me she was headed to Poland. I also told her I saw Fr. Kevin Scallon at the Eucharistic Congress last week. What a pleasant surprise to run into her. You can’t miss her with red hair!
We board our plane in a little while. I thank the Lord for a great pilgrimage and it will be great to return to the US.
