Rome Here We Come!
Two weeks ago, if you would have told me I was going to Rome, I would have laughed out loud!
It just goes to show you how quickly things can change.
Many of you may know that my Husband is a Permanent Deacon with the Roman Catholic Church here in Toronto. What does that mean? Well, to put it in it's simplest terms, a Deacon Serves. My husband serves by visiting inmates once a week at the local jail/holding facility. He also visits the elderly at a nursing home, and visits the children in schools (2) in our neighborhood.
We (he and I) entered the Diaconate Program in 2005, went to school for 4 years and then in 2010 Alan became a fully ordained Deacon, while I received a Diploma in Theology.
Now the Fun Begins:
As reported earlier, If He Wants You There:
|Looking out over St. Peter's Square|
|Inside the Dome of St. Peter's Basilica|
|Pope Francis with the children|
Now we are scrambling:
Cameras are ready, extra batteries, medications, passports, suitcases and hundreds of other little necessities are piling up on my dining room table. Rome guides are ordered and should be here soon. Now we just have to be patient until the 23rd of May, when we will be flying out of Toronto on our Way to the Eternal City, ROME!
By the time you are reading this review, we will be on our way home from Rome. We arrive on June 1st, late in the evening, God Willing.
