Hello, dear poppets! I'm back from Rome and catching up on work. I will get to your emails and to a proper post later today. These days I don't take my computer to the continent, but I am thinking that I really need a smartphone.
All I'll say for the moment is that there are really cool never-married ex-pat Single people, priests and lay, living in and around Rome, working and feasting and sunning themselves and generally having a great time. There's a few married people, too, with babies who are fun to play with.
I think it would be incredibly awesome to be Single and Catholic in Rome. More awesome to be Single and Catholic in Rome than in Toronto, that is for sure.
