A journal dedicated to the life and mission of St. Gaspar del Bufalo, and to a life lived in response to the call and the cry of the Most Precious Blood of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Our on-going mission is to share good news of hope and communion.

Some things are hard to take. The All Star game starts at 2:00am over here. I will have to wait until Wednesday Morning and look it up on the web.

I may not have time for blogging tomorrow. I think the time spent with John Paul tomorrow will take priority. We have some driving to do as the audience is at his summer residence in Albano. Our Shrine of St. Gaspar, our first center is right across the street. St. Gaspar was first buried at the shrine in Albano before being moved to Crociferi, Santa Maria in Trivio in Rome.

Absolutely infectious, gorgeous, haunting, beautiful music:

Apujtaitaiku kuiaypaiaywaicuk...

The liturgy today was presided over by the delegation from Peru, and they sang the kyrie in q'chi. This is the language of the people they serve in the mountains of Peru. The music was short, simple and hauntingly beautiful.

Padre Dionesio, who does not speak any English, will sing it again for me when I have pen and paper in hand. I plan on bringing the music home and sharing it with my choir in Chicago.

Speaking of Padre Dionesio, his cousin, Marco Pozo, was my Spanish teacher.
