While I am not looking forward to the many many hours of travel that we are facing, I am looking forward to the opportunity to quietly read, prepare for Rome and hopefully catch a few winks of sleep.

I’ve heard so much about San Giovanni Rotondo and I am so excited to finally visit.

He ends his blog with a wonderful slideshow of photos from the Consistory. (I am in more than a few of the pictures) This slideshow will be familiar to my loyal readers, as I posted the link here several months ago.
Cardinal Sean, welcome to blogging. I hope you stay.
You are well loved over here and you are always in my prayers.
