Pope at the White House

Just finished watching the Holy Father’s arrival ceremony at the White House.  As a military musician in DC, I have participated in ceremonies like this before, but, this time, it was for our guy!  It was such a kick to see all that pomp and circumstance being bestowed on OUR Holy Father.  It made me so very proud.  Kudos to my Army Chorus friends on a job well done. 

Kathleen Battle seemed especially moved during her performance.  Does anyone know if she’s Catholic?
