We elected to visit the four major Patriarchal Basilicas on this short trip and today we visited St. Mary Major. There I ran into an old friend from my Calvert House days. Michael O'Conner was then an undergrad. Now he is a Dominican priest (for five years) and he is doing a doctorate in Rome. We also visited Gammarelli. The sisters purchased a few palls, and I acquired a few shirts. Also a Gammarelli, The Sisters ran into an old friend from St. John Cantius from Chicago. Gammarelli has a 200 year old vestment that is all hand embroidered. Anyone with $10,000 is welcome to it. The Day ended with Solemn Vespers presided over by Archbishop Ganswein.
