Mass today at St. Matthew's Cathedral was said by Cardinal McCarrick. Present, as he often is on important occassions, was Cardinal Baum. I was surprised to learn that Baum is one of three living cardinals who elected John Paul II. God bless him.

Galley Friend R.S. found for me, a fascinating site--think of it as the Vatican's Elias Bureau. While there, I looked up William Wakefield Cardinal Baum, and he really is an amazing fellow in his own right.

Those of us from St. Peter's Parish, KCMO, are proud to claim Cardinal Baum as one of our own.
