Praying and walking

I see Max is keeping everyone on your feet! A busy mind!

Finally have Internet, yay! Have spent all of my time so far walking around, revisiting favorite spots, finding new faces and keeping my prayer promises! Brought all of your requests to dear St. Philip Neri, and St Catherine of Siena, and was privileged to spend over an hour in prayer at the chapel of the Blessed Sacrament in St. Peter’s Basilica, where I brought all intentions!

The city is beginning to fill up, and moving about is becoming difficult. In the morning I have some business to attend to and then I think people-watching while nursing a Guinness is in order. At the Irish Scholars Pub near Gesu Church. If you’re around, look me up!

    Great to hear this update, have been holding you in prayer from here! Thanks for your prayers.

    Enjoy that Guinness!

    Forgot to mention in emails that a blogging friend of mine is going to be at the blogger meeting… her name is Philomena Ewing and she is from the UK. If you get a chance to meet her, do say hello.

    You sound like you’re having a ball! And you once posted that you hated to travel. :-P

    Dear Elizabeth, Glad your are having a good time and keeping our requests before the alters of God. Be sure to let us know how Elder son’s interview goes.

    Your boy is killing your blog; where on earth did you find him?

    [in fact, I found him in the comments section, where he was challenging me, or snarling at me, I can't remember. But I know a good writer and interesting thinker when I see one! -admin]

    Have a fab time, and I’ll pass on the advice given by our parish priest long ago before our first visit to Rome — watch out for the pickpockets!

    And ignore Dave — Max is doing a great job…

    You have a right to your opinion, just like anyone. But get something straight, sweet pea: I’m nobody’s boy.
