"It was an intriguing experience," the 58-year-old Glen Ellyn resident said Thursday. "Everybody was really in a fantastic state of mind and the pope was received so warmly." Carlson, who was invited to Wednesday morning's arrival ceremony through U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam, described it as "a unique event." "Obviously, something like this doesn't happen every day," she said. Carlson said she enjoyed the apparent unity between Pope Benedict and President Bush. "They were so united in many of their thoughts that it was refreshing," she said. "Everyone around you totally appreciated the words of the president because they knew that many of the things he said were so in line with the pope.")
