Fr. Eric’s 2009 Rome Experience journal — Day 20

Saturday, Day 20:  Rome  

The men have a day off from any obligations, though we stressed that they still must go to Mass and do their prayer.  Most went to the Vatican for Mass; some left with Fr. Baker to visit the Nashville Dominicans here in Rome.  I said the Mass this morning at the scheduled time with one lone student as server!  At 10:30, we all left for an audience with Cardinal Arinze.*  The audience was fantastic;  he was amazing in his theologically precise yet simple explanations of the faith.  I hope he will be as gracious again the next time.
