Friday, Day 26: Rome
We took the 118 to the Catacombs of San Sebastian and got there a little before 10:00. After the tour, we had Mass in the catacombs, a very moving experience. The altar was well-prepared, but they had a clay chalice and paten for our use. In the future, we might want to bring our own, of a little nobler quality. We took the 218 back; as it turns out, it is a lot closer to San Sebastian. That evening, everyone left for the vesper service opening the Year of the Priest. Those wearing cassocks received better seating than those dressed in a clerical suit. We returned to Fraterna Domus for dinner at 8, as the sisters agreed to serve dinner a little later than usual.
