This morning I said Mass for us at San Moisè, which is convenient for the hotel. The sacristan is wonderful. He is as helpful and friendly as (most) Roman sacristan are… not. He was also interested in the older, traditional for of Mass, and stayed to participate.
Our altar, with a Tintorretto.
Tomorrow is the Feast of St Athanasius, whose body is here in Venice. I will stop at the church later to see if I can have his altar for Mass sometime during the day.
Meanwhile, here is a great food arrangement I saw.
For lunch I started with Sarde in saor. Yum.
A visit to S M del Rosario… once a Dominican church, decorated by Tiepolo and Jacopo Tintoretto.
This is magnificent.
This would be in an illustrated dictionary under “piety”.
Then to the Accademia.
Some power sitting and a Campari.
