Romesick

In a mood of continuing Romesickness, I thought I'd post a few photos from our super pilgrimage a few weeks ago.

View from Castel Sant' Angelo


In the Vatican gardens: the Pope's favourite fountain ...

In Santa Maria Maggiore

Rome, sweet Rome


Our group with Roman scouts and guides
Just been so busy after returning from Rome. I have not had time to record what a wonderful experience itr was for us all: boys and teachers. It was a real pilgrimage and the boys entered into it in that spirit.

They were so happy with their singing too. We ended up singing renaissance polyphony in the corridors of the Castel Sant Angelo, the Metro train and in the street, as well as in churches ...

One spiritual highlight was going up the Scala Santa on our knees.

Any way, we have all been Romesick ever since we returned.
