First, I don’t remember as I write exactly who asked me to pray at a site in Rome associated with St. Gregory, but yesterday at the tomb of St. Gregory in St. Peter’s Basilica, I asked St. Gregory to ask God – who knows perfectly well who you are, to give abundant graces and help for whatever the needs are.
Second, I decided today that, with the exception of one Mass, all the Masses I will say while I am in Rome these few more says will be for benefactors (three, always in the list). I am especially grateful to those of you who sent donations before – and now during the trip – so that I could come.
I am getting internet well on my iPhone but not my laptop. So, if you send a note with a prayer intention I try to remember you as I get around and do things. Put PRAYER IN ROME in the subject line, so I can weed them out. When I got online today I had 867 unread emails waiting for me. Okay? I delete any mail with a title in the subject line and I never look at unexplained links. Ehv-vur.
I will also look at your URGENT PRAYER REQUESTS.
