JPII Beatification: Day One: Arrival
by Steve Ray on April 28, 2011
All are tired but also exhilarated. We had a few miss their flights but all are arriving now.
We had Mass first, then time to enjoy a delicious lunch at Ristorante di Pilotta before checking into the hotel and going out to a rousing welcome dinner with great food, wine and music. Now all are settling into the beautiful Ergife Hotel getting ready for a big day today including Mass in the catacombs.
All are well, excited and fully enjoying the start of this trip. Tom Monaghan joined us today along with Teresa Tomeo and 58 filling the bus! Enjoy the movie of today.
Steve and Janet,
We enjoyed your first video. Please tell Carol Allen and any of our other friendsbonjourno! for us!!
Also, please tell Tom Monaghan thank you for building his chapel at Ave Maria behind WDEO. I try to get there as often as I can for noon Mass with Father Pat. To bad it took me almost a year before I discovered it. You guys have a great time and have fun!!
Jim and Cheryl
Loved the video! It settles my mind seeing you all there and safe. Glad Lance wore his LSU shirt. I could always spot you guys in the crowd. So happy you are all there and enjoying things. Miss you already.
