To Rome on June 12!

More thanks to readers who have made it easier for me to get to Rome to see Hilary. So far my patronesses (for they are all women so far) have donated $10, $15, $25, $50 and $50. This means that my round-trip flight to and from Ciampino ($135) is paid for, as is a third of my cab fare to Edinburgh airport.

Despite various suggests I go to Birmingham, I am simply not bussing it to Birmingham. That would take longer than it would to fly to Ciampino! And Ciampino is only about 20 minutes outside of Rome.

June 12 is Pentecost, and how happy was I to discover that the parish of Santissima Trinita, which is cared for by the Fraternity of the Priests of Saint Peter, has Sunday evening mass in the Extraordinary Form? Hooray!

Today is Ascension Day, and I hope you are all having a nice one. B.A. and I just got back from Mass.

Hurrah! Next year I am going to do loads of travelling when I am in the UK.

I went to a different Latin mass from my usual, this one has a lot more of the stereotypes, the families in Laura Ingalls Wilder dresses, a stack of missals and mantillas to borrow, etc.
