In the meantime, I am going on pilgrimage. I am chaperoning (no, helping to chaperone) 22 high-school-aged women to Rome and Germany in celebration of the 100-year anniversary of the Schoenstatt Movement. It is a pilgrimage of the US Schoenstatt Girls' Youth. There are several other pilgrimage groups going to Europe at various times of this year. I am looking forward to being once again in the Heart of Mother Church in Rome. I am looking forward to being once again in the heart of Schoenstatt, Koblenz Germany. I will be leaving in 3 days to carpool to a Schoenstatt center in Wisconsin, stay overnight there, and go on to Chicago International Airport on Sunday.
I probably will not be able to blog while I'm abroad. But I have created a Tumblr picture blog for the occasion, in the event that I can find WIFI and upload a few pictures every once in a while. You can find the link to my Tumblr on the right side of my homepage, or just click here. :)
Please keep me in your prayers, and know that I carry you with me on this pilgrimage. If you have specific prayer intentions you'd like me to carry spiritually, please email me here.
