Porters and attendants scurry about, bags are packed, goodbyes said, away messages posted.
Excitement is in the air as pastel clad honeymooners sprint to departure gates and beach bound vacationers idly sip Mojitos, eagerly awaiting their days of rest and relaxation. And in the midst of it all the missionaries sit at their gate playing cards and praying lauds. We don't know what to expect. The opportunities are limitless, the Holy Spirit can do as He pleases and it'll be amazing. The canonization of Pope John Paul II is very much on our minds. We pray the great Witness to Hope will help us do the same. And away we go. Boarding passes and passports in hand.
