In the footsteps of saints...

There’ll be lots of pilgrimage pictures coming, as soon as they’re sent to me by several of our pilgrims. We had wonderful seats at the Papal Audience, in the reserved section right near the papal chair, and several of the clergy had the opportunity to be presented to the Holy Father, with the chance to exchange a few words with him. Also we had a marvelous celebration of Solemn Evensong at St. Mary Major, with Cardinal Law presiding, and a very moving Mass at St. Peter’s Basilica in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel with Archbishop Amato as the main celebrant. When I get the pictures of these and other events, I’ll post them along with more commentary.

Meanwhile, these pictures show our Mass at Montecassino, in the crypt where St. Benedict and his sister, St. Scholastica, are buried, and also our Mass in the catacombs, which I always find to be a wonderful place to pray.
