Day 4


Another Roman dawn:

It was a Saturday so the liturgy was from the book of Masses for the Virgin Mary. We did the Votive of Mary, Help of Christians, the patroness of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood.

What else can I say about this day? There was a nice long walk; I bought too many books, a visit to a Roman Grocery store, and the most delightful Pork Sandwich from a sidewalk café. This was followed by a very long nap and then by preparations for an evening BBQ.

It was a wonderful evening. The night was beautiful. It was immediately noticeable when the sun dipped behind St. Peters and the air became very calm and cool. There was a lot of shop talk too be sure. My only comment is that the difference between the Vatican and the local parish is hardly noticeable.

Except for the view:
