Some last errands before I leave Rome.
I went to a Vatican “Bank” ATM to check on the status of my account, which I have maintained since the 80′s.
I spent time in the Augustinianum library today. It is the best of its kind.
If anyone thinks that there is a new liturgical style on the ascendency, and that style is simple cum ugly, guess again. If you want to see the trend, look in clerical shop windows. You will see what us actually selling, a far kore accurate indicator of liturgical trends.
For supper I met a young priest who is a reader of the blog. Nice fellow, very bright. Canonist. He confirmed a lot if what I have been hearing and concluding, We are at a place PETA would hate.
A fitting last meal for Roma:
Tomorrow the last phase begins as I meander home.
