Friday, day 12: Rome
The sisters have requested that we make no noise in the chapel before 7 AM, so we started the day with 30 minutes of mental prayer, then morning prayer. After an early breakfast, we headed to St. Peter’s for Mass. Everything went fine. Afterwards, we met at Santa Croce for lunch. I met with Fr. Gahl, who assured me all was well for videotaping. I tried to get something printed, but after much difficulty decided to give up completely. That evening, we talked to the Secretary of the Congregation for Clergy [Archbishop Mauro Piacenza], where we had a very animated discussion lasting almost two hours.
