Sunday, Day 7: Norcia
Dark and rainy day and rather cold; a jacket is needed to feel comfortable outside. The nights have been very cool and the sun warms up rather hot — but not today. It is the last Sunday of the year, and Norcia has a Mass in the evening at 8:15, followed by a procession around the city in honor of the Blessed Virgin. Unfortunately, the rain is falling too hard and cold for the procession. It was very sad to see the young children, all dressed up with flowers in their hands but with no place to parade.
