After an incredible week full of so many blessings and lots of activities, most importantly ordination to the diaconate, I was blessed to have a week of vacation. While all the events were so much fun, there’s no denying I was pretty exhausted by the end.
Many of my classmates have already begun the new academic year, however my particular program does not start until next week.
So I was able to arrange a short three day trip down to Bari to visit some friends and get away from Rome for a few days.
In Bari I was able to deacon a few times in Italian, but more importantly I was able to relax some.
I took many walks around the city with no worries regarding time or where I was going.
Now I’m back in Rome and ready to start the regular routine. My little excursion to Bari turned out to be just what the doctor ordered.
