Phoned Bishop John J. O’Connor who is to replace Cardinal Cooke. This will be a good relationship—Pope John Paul has chosen well. Met with some Sens. re the School Prayer Amendment. Dont know if I did any good. P.M. Fitzgerald of Ireland was our visitor. He’s a fine man. I think we gave him some different insights on Central Am. He’s very brave & outspoken about the terrorism in N. Ireland. We held a St. Patrick’s day lunch which was great fun with many old friends such as Maureen O’Hara, Geraldine Fitzgerald, Merv Griffin, Eva Gabor & Ginger Rogers on hand. Geo. Shultz & I then huddled on Angola & the Middle East. I had a photo with our Ambas. & wife to Lebanon (the Reginald Bartholomews). They should both have medals for bravery. Our embassy has been under artillery fire off & on for months. They never flinched. Then it was off to Camp David—with a brief case full of homework. Weather was fair but chill—most of snow gone. Now we’re back at the W.H. Mubarak has asked for A.W.A.C.S. which we’ve provided in response to an unprovoked bombing of Sudan by Libya.
