Angling for a Glimpse
George Logusch, a 23-year old of graduate of Catholic University, came to the Law School lawn at the college at 8 a.m. today and secured a front row position to see Pope Benedict when he arrives for his 5 p.m. meeting with Catholic educators. Logusch graduated in May with a degree in architecture and wants to get a job designing churches to help "bring out the faith in a physical way."
Hundreds of students and teachers were on the lawn this afternoon, enjoying the beautiful weather, listening to a band play. Many watched the Mass at Nationals Stadium on a giant television screen installed on the lawn for the day.
But no one had a better viewing advantage than Logusch, who was positioned right behind the barriers next to the road. "I wanted this spot," he said, "so I could get just a glimpse of him."
