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.

Yesterday's audience was wonderful. Yes, he looks more and more frail each time I see him. I cannot believe that I have been able to see him twice in the last two months.

Liturgies are prepared for today. I will preside at Eucharist this afternoon. Imagine having a congregation of 30 priests who speak 10 different languages. Along with with latin and hebrew we included all of them in this morning's psalm, each verse was chanted in a different language.

Rome is hot enough. I am sweating at this computer like I was in a sauna.

Yesterday after the audience we visited Santa Croce where Gaspars uncle was once an Abbot, San Clemente, San Pietro in Vinculo, San Martino in Monti where Gaspar was baptized, St. Mary Major, and Our Mother of Perpetual Help. With all that walking, and all that heat, I consumed a couple of gallons of water.

Today, more talks, and a visit with a candidate from the Phillipines.
