The story of how I received this blessing myself…..
Last year my husband and I went on our 25th Anniversary trip to France and Italy. It was absolutely an incredible trip, where so many wonderful things happened it’s hard to remember them all! One of the most memorable days was visiting Vatican City. We had a tour set up with the Vatican and I would HIGHLY suggest this if you are going to visit. A lot of things would not have meant as much, and I would have walked right by without the guidance of this expert, and we did not wait in a single line!
After we had toured the Vatican, The Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica, we were just sitting in the middle of St. Peter’s Square taking in our surroundings. We were actually quite overwhelmed with feelings, information, thoughts etc. and I think we just wanted to take it all in for a few minutes. We were standing there talking, I am sure I was using my southern drawl and probably a few y’alls thrown in every now n then. A young Priest came up to me and asked “Are you from the South US?” I answered him “YES” and he got the biggest smile on his face. He said he was from Missouri and was studying at the Vatican for a year and was very homesick and was so glad to hear “MY ACCENT”-ha, what accent. We stood and talked with him for the next hour and met several of his colleagues. We talked about what was going on back at home, our travels and even talked about religion. While I am not Catholic, I have a thirst for spiritual knowledge, am interested in all religions and I know a good hearted person when I see one! Before we said our good bye’s we prayed together, for his studies, for our trip and a thank you for our meeting. It was blessed. He asked me if I believed in the Holy Sacrament of the Rosary? I told him I was interested in learning more and had just purchased my first Rosary that day. He pulled out a little package and handed my husband and I both a Rosewood Rosary that he said they had been given that morning and that they had been blessed by Pope BeneDictvs XVI that morning. We gladly accepted these gifts and his blessings. This is not a day we will soon forget.
So I ask my fellow travel lovers, Will you please help me Bless someone?
My religion is Love.
