May your anniversary be as sweet as the strawberries, as sustaining as the amatriciana, as beautiful as the fabrics and as edifying as the eternal city herself. Thank you for all you do for these sheep (even the very odd ones) who know you from these pages.
Happy Anniversary! I hope it’s filled with everything and everyone you love
Congratulations and good cheer, will remember your intentions at Mass on Corpus Christi, the day I celebrated my own First Mass, 39 years ago.
I have to be in Rome for an Economics conference at the Bank of Italy in September. What is the name of the restaurant, above?
Always great to celebrate these anniversaries, of course, and pray to be like good wine, getting better, or at least more grace-filled, with age.
Your photos prompt me, some year, just to go to Rome for my annual retreat, and spend each day at a different church to pray for a few hours and attend the liturgy in EF masses. And of course celebrate the EF at St. Mary Major, at the altar where St. Ignatius celebrated his first Mass. And enjoy the good food. Yes, this is a great time, with the fresh strawberries.
English Dominicans are always at St. Mary Major for confession, by the way, and I have always left after seeing them for the sacrament, very much consoled (as well as forgiven).
