Monday, day 8: Norcia
The retreat ended after Mass in the crypt at 8:15. It is still raining, but that has not stopped some from heading off on little excursions. Some of the guys are trying to do their laundry* at a local laundromat, but they do it for you and it is quite expensive: five Euro for a pair of pants. I think that next year, we should tell them to be prepared to hold out on laundry until Rome. Everyone seemed to like the retreat, except for the lack of a chapel with the Blessed Sacrament available. It would have been very convenient to have books and maps of Assisi so we could have spent a little of our afternoon planning our trip there.
