On Monday night after arriving and spending the day in Rome we attended a reception at the U.S. Embassy. Ambassador Diaz and his wife welcome about one hundred Americans to the compound for a light reception in honor of the Archbishop and three other American Archbishops who were appointed. On Tuesday we celebrated Mass near the tomb of St. Peter followed by a day of sightseeing. So far the days have been long and hot, but well worth it.
Tomorrow I will be in attendance for the Pallium Mass for the Archbishop. Unfortunately I will not be serving the Mass. However, do watch EWTN for all the celebrations and to see if you can spot me in the crowd.
