Sunset today was at 7:34 and Sunset over Rome will be at 18:14. The Ave Maria rings – or should ring -at … hmmm 17:30. Interesting.
Of course we shifted here from “daylight savings” back. Hence, an extra hour of sleep!
Before anything else, someone sent a photo of this mug. Fun.
Yesterday we had the procession from San Lorenzo in Damaso to San Pietro in Vaticano.
This was fun. When we passed under the terrace of the Congregation for Divine Worship, we got an audience, many of whom took photos. It is hard to tell, but one of them has a red zucchetto.
As I was taking a couple of them taking photos of us, a few of them waved.
Inside all set up for the end of “walking together”. Thanks be to God.
My view for awhile….
All in all, not a bad frontal.
On the way out I venerated the tomb of the Apostles Simon and Jude, whose feast is, as I write, tomorrow.
Later, supper with friends. That black stuff is a magnificent salt.
Caponata. I spoke with the kitchen and got their tips about how they make it.
Forgive me for not being chattier. Lots of people have descended on town and on me.
Meanwhile, I’m getting lots of little notes about the closing of the Synod (“walking together”).
While they were doing whatever they were doing across the river, here is a single shot of what we were doing.
No wooden demon dolls.
Just pure praise of and present of Christ.
