May 19: Benvenute (Welcome)

 

Welcome to day three of our pilgrimage and to the beautiful hills of Umbria! Our drive will take us through the spectacular countryside and bring us to the medieval walled town of Norcia; birthplace of St. Benedict and his twin sister, St. Scholastica, in 480. We'll be celebrating Mass with the monks of the Monastery of San Benedetto and also take a tour that will help us enter into their prayer, charism and mission. We'll enjoy a great meal together (which isn't hard to do in Umbria) and then check out the brewery that makes Birra Nursia, the beer founded by the monks in 1208.

Today, pray to St. Scholastica and St. Benedict and ask them to help us be open to the relationships that will be made, to listen attentively in the spirit to the voices of our sisters in Christ, and to respond generously to their needs.

Looking forward to journeying with you!
