Here are some belated pictures of our trip through Italy to Norcia for the ordination of Fr. Thomas Bolin, O.S.B. These were taken by Katie, since our own camera disappeared on the trip.
After a 6:00 departure on Friday morning we stopped for Lunch in Padua, Italy, in order to venerate the relics of St. Anthony. Below, Maria with one of her favorite saints ("A" is for Antony, a friar wise and kind. He never had a penny, but he never seemed to mind...)
Helping each other to get through the long car ride.
We also stopped briefly in Assisi. It was too late in the evening to venture up onto the hill, since most of the churches would have been closed anyways, but we did make it into Santa Maria degli Angeli in time for the end of Vespers.
