I’m staying close to the Campo de’ Fiori this time. It is handy for shopping and opportunities to spit at the statue of Giordano Bruno.
I’m happily going to my “usual” family run vegetable stand which I have frequented since I lived in the neighborhood a zillion years ago. The nice old lady is still going strong.
And I had to get some coppiette.
One of the best paranza I’ve had in years.
This is yours truly saying Mass for the intention of all those who donated for this Rome trip.
During my stay I will be saying Mass for the intention of my Rome donors. HERE Yes, that is also an appeal.
And then there were today’s sea critters.
Not mine, my host’s, but I had a taste. Marvelous rice.
Mine. Classic. Wonderful.
Last night there was a fine Pontifical Vespers service at Ss. Trinità. It was one of the pilgrimage events. The celebrant was a very old Argentine bishop who, I learned, back in the day had taken a principled stand against Communion in the hand. I only have one photo, but it’s fun.
How many seminarians can sit on a bench?
Tonight, Pontifical Mass at S. M. in Campitelli.
Okay… this is Santa Maria in Campitelli.
My view from choir.
As the celebrant, Bp. Pozzo of the PCED begins his sermon.
Card. Brandmueller in choro.
After Mass and veneration of the miraculous image of Mary.
On the way to meet friends, the famous little turtle fountain.
I stopped at a restaurant where I know the Voris crew would be. It was nice to see Michael again.
Speaking of Michael, here is his most recent video on the Synod and on the Pontificate … or perhaps the Parenthesis… of Pope Francis.
For your consideration.
And thus ends a long day.
Tomorrow there is a procession to San Pietro and a Pontifical Mass.
