I'm checking in for a minute at an internet cafe in Rome.  Our pilgrimage is off to a great start with three solid days here.  Great group of GW Catholics!  We have hit much of Rome since we arrived early on Sunday morning.  We have enjoyed visits to St. Peter's (including walking all the way up to the top of the dome), St. Peter in Chains Cathedral (Cardinal Wuerl's titular church), food, St. Mary Major, St. John Lateran (my favorite), food, Trevi Fountain, Vatican Museum, Colosseum, Roman Forum, more food, and other cool stuff.  Wish I could upload some photos...maybe next time I'll be prepared.

Taking an overnight train to France tonight...bound for Lourdes and Paris.

Already some spiritual fruits going on in our group as we are all bonding nicely and enjoying just about every minute of this (there are some sacrifices involved in our pilgrimage but everyone is offering them up quietly and generously).

Ciao for now!
