Day 1
Tuesday, June 23, 2015

We have all arrived and are off and….praying, seeing, walking places we’ve not been before.

On this first day Fr. John Cush celebrated the opening Mass.  In his homily he detailed a few reasons to study in Rome.
  • It gives one the sense of the Universal Church.
  • We will return home with a renewed appreciation for things at home.
  •  Rome herself is a great teacher.
  • Build the Sister’s network.  We never seem to go to a place where there is not hospitality in “our network.”
As we traveled the number of bilingual people was impressive.  So many could easily make their comment in German, and if you looked confused they’d try something else.  Father’s comment about the universality of the Church and humanity was confirmed.

A quarter of our group is still waiting for luggage.  Spirits seem undaunted by the absence of our “things”, nevertheless eventually there are a few things we could use.  St. Anthony, we could use a little help here. 
Thanks for reading, God bless.
