I am in Rome, as some will recall.
Since the end of the pilgrimage I have been doing as much nothing as possible. Alas, a lot of nothing is not possible, so I do as much nothing as possible.
Here, of course, that involves lots of sleeping, Mass, and meeting friends for meals and talking about everything going on.
A couple shots.
Yesterday I went to the FSSP parish for Vespers. Not a bad view.
A shot from lunch today.
I said Mass for my benefactors today. I checked the updates. Though I haven’t updated the sidebar yet.
Mass for benefactors again on Wednesday, I hope.
A view across the wonderful Ponte Sisto toward the street wherein I stayed the first ever time I came to Rome in the early ’80’s.
The ancient Vatican pinecone which was once in front of of the old, Constantinian San Pietro. Dante mentioned it in the Divine Comedy.
Finally Sant’Ivo from a great angle.
I need to start getting some errands done soon. Among them find a cassock I can leave here so when I come over I don’t have to haul it and put it and me through all the wear and tear. (Just black.)
