Papal Audience, Rome Walking Tour, Mass at Graphic Martyr Church and more
by Steve Ray on May 3, 2018
Papal Audience began our day — everyone go t good pictures and videos up close with Pope Francis. We left on a three hour walking tour through Rome which included the Trevi Fountain, lots of gelato, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona and more.
We drove to St. Stefano’s Church for Mass where I gave an abbreviated version of my talk “Swimming Upstream“. I showed them all the murals of the martyrdoms which are pretty graphic. Fr. Fran’sexcellent homily here.
Liz Lev then came to our hotel and gave her one and a half hour slideshow presentation on the Sistine Chapel to prepare our group for their visit tomorrow. There is nothing else like Liz’s presentation and you can get a feel of it when she did it as one of the TED Talks.
We had a great dinner here at the Michelangelo Hotel and a good nights sleep in preparation for a busy day, our last day, tomorrow.
