The Oct. 18 edition of The Living Church is available online to registered subscribers. In the cover story, the Rev. Jonathan Mitchican writes about attending the papal Mass on Sept. 27 in Philadelphia:

It took us three and a half hours to get through the tight security line. We were all huddled together, shuffling along a couple of steps at a time. It was difficult, but graces began to flow. Up in a window high above us, someone had posted a life-size picture of Pope Francis praying with the words “#PopeInAWindow.” We all shouted and cheered as the people in the window waved. Then a large group of young Dominican nuns from Nashville started singing and the whole crowd followed suit. We sang “Amazing Grace,” “Salve Regina,” “Ave Maria,” and even “God Bless America.” We felt we were part of something larger than life.
