A Proper Pilgrimage...


Some friends from my parish church are going to cycle to Rome next month via an ancient route from Canterbury called the Via Romea. I encourage you to take a look at their blog for more details.

I have never been to Rome, but I have always wanted to go. My mother and I had planned on going for my 21st birthday but lack of funds dashed that idea. Years ago I wanted to go to Papal High Mass each day in each of the stational churches in Rome during Lent, but since no such splendour exists anymore I think nowadays I'd rather visit Rome to aid my classical education more than anything else (the 18th century Grand Tourist was often profoundly disappointed with Catholic Rome)...
