We arrived at Palazzola today and promptly went for a walk. John Beach, the priest in Geneva (an old seminary pal of mine) insisted that Castel Gandolfo (the town where the pope spends his summers) was only a mile and a half away. I forgot that John lies all the time. We walked at least four miles along a muddy broken trail until we arrived in town, purchased wine and cigars and returned for the beginning of our retreat, which is being led by Frank Griswold, the former Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church of the USA. Having a wonderful time! The photo above is the sunset this evening over Lago Albano. Sometimes being a clergyman is tremendous!
