    Today was planned to provide some much needed respite to some tired feet. We jigsawed the luggage into the car, and off we went. Our first stop was the currently-under-construction temple in northeastern Rome.

    The rest of the congregation ensued and as the crowd parted, the procession walked down the center of the street with the band tailing behind.

    It was a really neat to be there to see the pomp and circumstance of the celebration. We asked someone later and discovered that it was San Giuseppe Day. ...

    ... Bolsena is a beautiful crater lake formed by the eruption of Mount Vulsini. Besides being a lovely recreation area, it is famous for the miracle that happened here in 1263 when a German priest was celebrating Holy Mass. Blood started to seep from the consecrated Host. The blood stained cloth was then brought to the Pope in Orvieto. The cloth now lies in the Duomo ...
