Today, I took part in the downtown events of this National Day of Remembrance. The area around Daley Plaza was overrun with people. The closest I got to the plaza was on Washington between Clark and LaSalle. It was amazing how our city showed its support for this country.

After that, I made my way down to St. Peter's in the Loop for the 12:15 Mass. Those of you who know St. Peter's are aware that its building on Madison is not very large. It, too, was overrun with people. The pews were packed, and even the chior loft was packed. Holy Communion must have taken at least 10 minutes because of the throngs of people there.

The support our nation's people has provided will make these dark days go by a little easier.
