Greetings from the Eternal City


I am enjoying my stay in Italy. It is a bit warm, but the mornings and evenings are very pleasant. I am staying in a little pensione as the CPPS are all away at a symposium in Austria. The Pope is on vacation so the crowds are not too big. I have enjoyed showing some friends the sites of Rome for the first time. Other than that I am visiting sites I have never seen before. five minutes from my hotel is the Theatine church of San Andreas (it is not my fault) where the priests pray lauds at 7:30am and then there is Mass at 8:00am. Five minutes the other direction are the Brigittine Sisters and they have adoration, Vespers and Benediction every afternoon at 4:30pm.

Then, of course, there is the food. They know how to eat here. Every time I come to Rome I get to stuff myself and lose weight from all the walking. It is a great way to spend a vacation.

Be assured of prayers for all as I visit the tombs of the martyrs and saints.
