    Attended Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in NYC today. The presiding priest was Bishop William Murphy, who began his homily by asking the obvious question–how did he end up saying Mass on a day celebrating Italian-Americans? Turns out there’s a very good answer–the man is fluent in Italian, the predominant language of the Mass.

    Anyway, my wife and I spent today being honorary Italians, an honor we were proud to accept.
