After Mass and Breakfast we headed to the Abruzzi Region. First to The Sanctuary of the Holy Face. This is a unique cloth that was placed over the face of Jesus in the Tomb.When placed over the Shroud it fits exactly. Whereas the Shroud shows the face of Jesus in death, this is the face of Jesus at the moment of Resurrection.
Next we drove across the valley to a Little hill town know as Patrica. Here there is a shrine to Gaspar's works of reconciliation that took place near here..
Then we drove up to Albano. This place was beloved by Gaspar and it was where he was first buried. It has served as a place of formation,and also a place of retirement for our older members.
