It was another picture perfect day.
Before heading to Mass today I made sure to have a brief stroll in the park.
After Mass, eggs… Benedict, of course.
After Sung Vespers, several of us went to China Town (which is taking over Little Italy). Our trek included a visit to Precious Blood, the National Shrine of San Genaro.
There is a great presepio in the church.
It’s not often you see statues of Sts. Cosmos and Damian.
They are marvelously… what’s the word… kitschy?
We had a nice walk in the park. The men were on one side, playing Chinese Chess, the woman on the other, playing cards. There were a couple live combos playing folk music. The trees are blooming.
Hand pulled noodles sounded like a good idea.
Afterwards, toast with condensed milk and tea.
A sweet end to a sweet day. Several of us went and had a glass of Chartreuse afterwards, which is a celebratory stable among the Holy Innocents crowd.
Meanwhile, on Monday there will be at Holy Innocents at least a Missa Cantata if not a full Solemn Mass for the Feast of St. Mark.
Monday, April 25, at 6:00 PM for Feast of St. Mark
