Parish Pilgrimage - Day 2 . . .

I'm afraid my little phone camera is not so good on inside shots so I've cheated today and used some library pictures. I did manage a couple of outdoor shots though when I was having a stroll around on my own this afternoon.

Today's itinerary began with a visit to the Basilica of St Paul Outside the Walls where Confession was available courtesy of the local Benedictines for those who wished to take advantage of the opportunity.

Mass today was at the Venerable English College, incidentally the oldest British institution abroad. Below you can see a picture of one of the chapels in the college.

Afterwards was free time for everyone to wander where they liked. I took this photo of this beautiful floral display on my own personal walk around the city near the Vatican.

I think some of our group visited the Pantheon this afternoon. Here's a shot I took of the obelisk and fountain in front of the Pantheon.

Finally, I cheated with this shot as you'd need a very good camera to be able to take such a good shot of the interior of the Pantheon showing the famous oculus.

We meet up again for dinner and, for some a quiet evening after a busy day but for those with any energy left, there are always places to visit and things to do in Rome in the evening.

A domani!

Beautiful flowers, Fr Míċeál - almost as good as St Ann's garden!
