Arrival in Rome
by Steve Ray on October 29, 2018
Most of our group returned back to the United States today but smaller contingency of us continued on to Rome. We boarded the Aegean Airline flight from Athens for the two hour flight. We started the day with Mass of San Stefano Rotondo. Fr. Cole’s homily here.
Lunch (wow, back in Italy with the best food in the world!) A tour underground at San Clemente, which is one of my favorite churches because it has the bones of two of my favorite Apostolic Fathers: St. Ignatius of Antioch St. Clement of Rome. Then to the Mother Church of the world, St. John Lateran with the papal chair. I also do a talk on the amazing typology around the name of the church on both sides and show all of the amazing relics the church contains that very few people know about.
Checking into our Michelangelo Hotel and dinner at The Goose. Enjoy!
