Fr. Eric’s 2009 Rome Experience journal — Day 8

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.
