ecclesia de eucharistia

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Sep 07, 2005

Former NCR editor Arthur Jones reminisces about old times.

I was editor when Pope John Paul II made his first U.S. visit. With all bases covered, I told one photographer -- he was Jewish, I believe -- where he'd be in the best position to get the up-close facial I needed of the pope.

The photog called in when he'd developed his shots. "I got it, Arthur!" he shouted into the phone. "I got it. I had to go to Communion five times, but I got it."

Amused?
