Well, I arrived Tuesday in Rome after a pretty smooth day of travel.
While waiting for my bags at the airport, I ran into Fr. Eduardo Ortega and three young men whom he was leading on a pilgrimage.
Some of you might remember that Fr. Eduardo accompanied our Word on Fire team during our filming in Mexico City.
There is a YouTube video of me with Fr. Eduardo
during the five minute duration of which I exhausted my entire Spanish vocabulary!
Later in the day, I ran into him again at St. Peter’s Square.
One of the things I love most about Rome is that it is such a crossroad for the universal church.
When you stand in St. Peter’s Square, you hear dozens of languages and you almost invariably meet someone you know...
