Another early Mass.All RC Priests are welcome to celebrate at the various Altars in St Peters from 7am,the que is so great you need to be early.
Had some interesting company at breakfast. A nun from India who was attending a conference for the careers of the blind. A Nigerian priest, who despite the atrocities perpetrated by some Muslims against Nigerian Christians, stated that not all Muslims are bad.
It being Wednesday,today is Papal Audience Day, so it is very busy. The Pope has aged greatly since I first saw him in my 2004 visit.
Yet more Churches to visit:
One containing the vestments of Padre Pio, a church which has a mission to drug addicts
A church which has what is reputed to be the pillar on which Jesus was flogged, one of the many things St Helena brought back to Rome. Holy Trinity,be warned, I can feel a sermon coming on.
Paid our respects at the English College, and remembered the Martyrs of England and Wales,including St David Lewis of Abergavenny martyred at Usk.
Due to technical difficulties I can not add photos at the moment. Thursday’s blog will have photos of the visit
