Dear friends and family,
Apologies for the long delay in updates. We had basically no Internet access in Assisi, and have had many long days here in Rome, making it difficult to update. Watch in the next day or two for our posts from the past week.
To give you a little insight into what is happening with us, today we went to the papal audience in St. Peter’s Square. I heard estimates that up to 150,000 people were in attendance to see Pope Francis. St. Peter’s Square was jam packed, but we were blessed to be very near the holy father, about 8 rows back from the front. After that, we had an appointment for a Scavi tour, which took us through the excavations under St. Peter’s Basilica, right to the tomb and bones of St. Peter himself. It was an incredible and moving experience, encountering both our first Pope and our current Pope all in one day.
Please know that we are praying for all of you daily.
