I'm Back on the BLOG

It has been a month since I have made a posting. My last entry was for the Rome Marathon. Today we confirmed our accommodations to go to the Athens Marathon on October 31. (It will be the 2,500th anniversary of the original run from Marathon to Athens!)

The past four weeks have kept me very busy.

I led my students on a field trip to Mt. Vesuvius, Pompeii and Herculaneum.

We had a special guest (Paul LoBello) from NYC with us for the Triduum and the first week of Easter.

We travelled to the region of Siena, enjoying a stay in a castle and sightseeing and eating in the towns of Bagno Vignone, San Quirico d'Orcia, Buonconvento, Pienza and the Abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore.

I was surprised to see the Reverend Fleming Rutledge sitting in front of me on the Second Sunday of Easter during the Eucharist at the Episcopal Church of St. Paul (inside the walls) here in Rome. I knew Fleming as a priest at Grace Church in Manhattan during the 1980's.

Last week we enjoyed a dinner with Bill and Kathie Maltby, a classmate from Mater Dei High School ('68) and Loyola University of Los Angeles ('72). Bill and his wife Kathie were visiting Rome as part of a vacation in Italy.
