Oh, my what a day. Great Mass with the Bishop this morning and then off to St. Peter’s for the General Audience with the Holy Father.
Can I tell you how close we were to him! Kathryn will be so JEALOUS! I love you babe and I promise I got great photos.
After a two hour lunch, love those Italians, we toured Tivoli and Villa d’Este and its 1,000 fountains, yes that number is correct.
Do we have a future pope from America…only time will tell….
Finally, dinner with Paolo and Patrizia, our Roman friends. As usual, Paolo didn’t fail me with a traditional Roman dinner including shrimp, octopus, sardines, squid, salmon and pasta. He also introduced me to a new after dinner drink…mirto…yummy!
Thanks Paolo and Patrizia for your friendship. Bacchi…
Off to bed and ready for another day at the Vatican.
Mass will be at St. Peter’s tomb…can I tell you how much I love being Catholic. Buono note!
