Yesterday we did a field trip to Oviette - I think that is how is spelled - and it was wonderful. Last weekend we were in Rome and, except for pickpockets on the Metro, it was good too. But I am glad that this trip has been centered in Assisi.There is really a special spirit here, something that abides of the life of Francis. I think that this is one of those trips that will ripen inside, change me and the way I live in the world, over time. Good description of a pilgrimage, I guess.
