Hope you’re ready for another full day of traveling as we continue our VIRTUAL pilgrimage of Italy!
This morning, we journey north through the Italian countryside arriving in the magnificent city of Siena, which invites us to stroll through its Gothic streets. After we celebrate Mass (if available) at the Dominican Church commemorating St. Catherine, we take the escalator down to the famous Piazza del Campo, the public palace, which dates back to 1250. We continue uphill to visit the monumental Cathedral dedicated to the Virgin Mary. Free time for lunch and browsing. In the afternoon we return to Rome for dinner and overnight as we prepare for the International Conference of Catechesis.

St. Catherine of Siena was, among other things, a courageous peacemaker, never afraid to “speak truth to power.” At this time in your spiritual journey, for what/whom do you most need courage to speak the truth?
