Church-a-thon

882291_432687833484963_1123045903_oThis Saturday, December 6th, my confreres and I will be participating in an event that we like to call “The Church-a-thon”. Once every Advent and every Lent, we hit the cobblestone streets of Rome early in the morning and don’t stop walking until we have visited 25 predetermined churches.

At each stop, we entrust to Our Lord and to the patron of the church the specific intentions of those who have asked for our prayers.  We usually start walking at 7 am, have mass at St. Mary

Major’s Basilica around 9 am, start walking again, have lunch at 1 pm, keep on walking, and finish around 7 pm. Needless to say, we all end the day with sore legs and feet!

Send me your prayer intentions! You can do so by leaving a comment here or by sending me a message using the contact form below.
