I’ve been on the move since I got here with a large group of people.
A shot from last nights supper. About all I was able to manage was a place of veg.
Today I stopped at the shop where my chalice was made. It is in the building where Pius XII’s family live!
Just for nice.
Pasquino has been chatty.
From lunch yesterday… vitello tonnato.
Just before I left home, I was asked by a guy at the parish if a particular corporal has been starched too hard. I explained that in Rome they were so stiff and shiny that they were like cardboard. So, in the sacristy where I said Mass yesterday, the corporal. Notice that it doesn’t yet want to lie flat.
Note the shine of the starch.
I stopped in Gammarelli and just missed Cardinals Burke and Harvey. I saw this, however.
I like it!
I met up with the group and we had a private Vatican Museum visit. It isn’ often you get to be alone in the Sistine Chapel.
After talking with a guard for a bit, I had a rapid visit to a famous room off the chapel.
Then off to have some pizza by the slice. All natural, organic ingredients. It was the best pizza I’ve ever had in Rome. And that counts a lot of pizza.
