E-mails home.

Yesterday, I sent this in a couple of e-mails that I wrote.


"Well, we're in Roma and all is well. The class is getting along fine; there aren't any missiles flying overhead; the pope is still on top of his game; the saints are all still buried here; the food is as good as ever; and we each have our own personal bathrooms. Now that's a trip!

"If you're not already, you can always check up on us on the SPS Blog--of course you've got all the time in the world to do so. We are being faithful, though, to writing up summaries of our visits and sending them off to Dcn. Jorge Canela who is unable to join us.

"We were at Santa Sabina as well as St. Cecilia's. Great churches. This morning, we had mass in St. Dominic's cell. St. Thomas' cell is in the cloister and so was unavailable to us; apparently they're not sure which exactly was his anyhow, here in Rome. They know which was his in Naples, though. I must say that spending all of this time with Dominicans/Thomists did make me think of SPS and all the many good Thomists on the faculty there. Deo gratias."
