Buona Pasqua (Happy Easter) a tutti!

Happy Easter from Rome! The city is in top form and full of visitors from all over the world, celebrating Easter with Papa Francesco. The traditional Urbi et Orbi (to the city and the world) blessing will be imparted from the balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica tomorrow morning. If you wish to travel there in the imagination, Rick Steves has just aired a new radio program in which he and Gene Openshaw (Rick’s lifelong friend and collaborator) explore the great church. And I’m there too! You can find it here. I hope you enjoy it and that you’ll come and see it person soon.
