Sunrise in Rome – 7:33 and Sunset – 18:15. The Ave Maria is still pinned to 18:30.
I’ve been terrifically busy the last couple of days. Hence, brief and less posting.
Lots of great people have descended on Rome for the Paix Liturgique conference and Summorum Pontificum pilgrimage. Today, procession to San Pietro and Pontifical Mass. Yesterday, the conference at my old school, the Augustinianum.
I gave one of the talks. As people were filtering in!
After my talk, from the back.
A nice view of the Via Giulia.
The businesses have great signs. Here’s one that is counter-intuitive to the environment.
At one of the confraternity churches on the way, they haven’t changed their papal stemma since…. who can tell us which Pope this is!
Last night there was a great Mass at the Pantheon, which is dedicated as a Basilica to Mary of the Martyrs. Hungarians! Norbertines and a choir from Budapest. They were really good.
This particular crucifix has always moved me. I’d like to build a church around it.
My good friend Augustine, from Tokyo, of Una Voce Japan.
At Sant’Agostino a “light show was about to begin. I didn’t stay for the abominable horrow show it was sure to be.
Just for nice.
