ROMETOBER FEST WITH FATHER D
Juan Pablo Sonnendorf, who is from my native place, lived in Rome for a long time and was a tour guide there. He is also staunchly traditional, not fond of women and loves to shoot with the guys. He now has a tour company that will be doing a pilgrimage to Rome in October (the best time of year in Rome, btw) to coincide with the annual Summorum Pontificum event AND the second half of the Rome Film Festival. So much drama! A Pontifical Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica during the day and artsy fartsy films at night. He sent me some details. I’ll just include them as bullet points with my EMphases and comments.
