Just to let others who my have the same thing in mind know, I plan to be in Rome for the annual Summorum Pontificum Pilgrimage.
I must put out the begging bowl for this trip. When you see the wavy Vatican flag on posts… heh… as often as you see the wavy Vatican flag, feel free to click and donate for this trip.
In Rome I’ll be saying the Traditional Latin Mass (of course) probably mostly at Ss. Trinità dei Pellegrini especially for benefactors for this pilgrimage. The list is growing. I’m keeping track.
Yes, I am going to miss the Synod! HUZZAH!
I guess I may be there for a little bit of the Synod after all.
However, I may also have a role in the Pontifical Mass with Card. Burke in St. Peter’s
UPDATE 19 Oct 0320 GMT:
I recorded some wonderful donations this evening (after a nasty long drive to my native place in horrid traffic… but I digress). I am sure I got everyone recorded. Please note that sometimes my “thank you” notes (I try to write a note to everyone) get kicked back to me as undeliverable. If you didn’t get a note, sorry about that. It may be that somehow my email didn’t make it through.
In any event, thank you. When something comes in I calculate (okay… that’s breakfast on Thursday – or – that’s n% of an alb (a couple of my albs are falling apart and I put a finger through an amice yesterday) – or – that’s an airport ride – or – that’s lunch with Fr. D at __ – 0r – that’s the new book by Q – or – that’s x% of lodging).
BTW… during my long drive I listened to a portion of Card Sarah’s new book (see sidebar) using my older gen Kindle which has text-to-speech. This man is the real deal. Papabile? Absolutely.
