Day 5: A day to relax
On this fifth
day of the General Chapter, the capitulars were free to sleep late, to relax
and to visit the Eternal City.
Some took tours organized by other Oblates who are
“old Romans” and are familiar with the city. Fr. Ned CAROLAN gave one of his
famous tours of St. Peter’s Basilica. Fr. Richard WOLAK accompanied a group to
visit the Basilicas of St. Mary Major and St. John Lateran. Fr. Don MC MAHON
led a group to the catacombs. And the more adventuresome joined Fr. Andrzej JASTRZEBSKI for a hike
into the Apennine mountains near Rome.
