In these days, 8% of our active diocesan priests (that is, 4 of us) from the Diocese of Birmingham in Alabama are here in Rome, along with about 14 or so members of the Diocese’s faithful. They come from 4 different parishes.
I had lunch and dinner with some on Sunday, dinner with some last night, and will dine with the rest of them tonight. After this I will begin a 40 day fast. Just kidding.
Pray for all travelers!
