Next week is a break for classes at CEA, we we are going for 3 days to Assisi. This has special meaning for Pat because he was a Franciscan for 9 years (of course, he's been my husband for 41 years, so I guess I beat out St. Francis -lol!!)
We left the apartment at 9:30 - only in Rome can one encounter 2 Orthodox rabbis who were conversing in Italian, and who greeted us in Hebrew (shabbat shalom!) and be followed by a group of youth pilgrims babbling and singing in German! What a great town!
So today we went to a great little store near the Pantheon where they sell Italian food for the cook and we sent our daughter a big box for her birthday, which is on Halloween, because she LOVES to cook!!!
We have been to so many churches, we are now reduced to seeing churches named after saints we never heard of! St Eustachio?? He looks young.
Perhaps he is the patron of ears - are the Eustachian tubes in your ears?? But he has nice church with lovely angel fonts
So tomorrow we will attend mass at Caravita, I will be the psalmist and then we will board a train for Assisi! My next post will be from there!!
