Day 1: Arrivals in Munich Germany and St Benno
by Steve Ray on June 15, 2022
We did not have any group air for this trip; everybody purchased their own airline flights from various cities in the United States and we all converged together in Munich Germany.
Some arrived early (like Janet and I, Fr. Dan, Teresa Tomeo and Deacon Dominick) and some arrived today, Wednesday, June 15.
We picked up our “today” flight passengers at the airport, checked in to the hotel then took our bus to our first Mass of the pilgrimage which was at St. Benno Church in Munich. I gave a talk on this unknown saint so people appreciate the mass even more. We were all delighted to find out it was his feast day today!
Those who arrived early walked the short distance from our hotel to the church and back.
We then went to our Eurostar Grand Central Hotel where we all settled in and had a nice dinner together.
Watch my short talk on St. Benno here—and the parallel state of the Church then and now!
