I am packing for my flight to Italy tomorrow. I’m pretty sure that my flights won’t be affected by nasty weather.
Speaking of nasty weather, this morning I had a call from my mother in Florida, right on the coast where the eye-wall came closest. She’s fine and there isn’t damage to the house, although power is out. But cellular towers are working! So… that’s that. Let there be sung Non Nobis and Te Deum.
I just finished reading the great biography of Lord Acton by Roland Hill. It is thorough and engrossing, especially about ecclesiastical matters. I highly recommend it. And it was highly recommended to me by Fr. Robert Sirico of ACTON INSTITUTE, no less. If anyone would be in the know about a good biography of Acton, it would probably be he. UK HERE
ZUHLSDORF’S LAW clicked in for a while yesterday. I started getting alerts on my phone from my credit card company about questionable purchases. During a phone call we established that, yes, my card had been compromised. Therefore, a day or so before heading to Italy, they cancelled my card. However, they were able to get another to me today!
I’ll be in Italy for quite a while. If you want to pitch in for an espresso (or more) click the wavy flag!
Also, I’m taking my KeepGo hotspot for data through my phone and laptop when away from WiFi. It’s great! If you want a great data hotspot for travel overseas, try this. If you use my referral link, I get some data as a reward in my account! HERE It is about the size of a hotel soap bar, very light, and works for hours of use. It is a great primary or back source for data usage on your phone at far lower cost than most carriers provide for overseas.
Pray for me in my travel.
Also, remember that TONIGHT I say Mass for my benefactors. 7 PM at St. Mary’s Pine Bluff. Unite your minds and hearts to the Sacrifice of the Mass even if you can’t be there. Rosary will proceed and we will sing, right after, the Litany of Loreto. Solemn Salve at the end. Nice.
