I am writing to you from the eternal city of Rome where on October 14, 2018 Our Holy Father, Pope Francis will canonize Blessed Paul VI and Archbishop Oscar Romero in Saint Peter’s Square. 206 Tours, a wonderful pilgrimage group on Long Island, is offering the possibility of coming to Rome for this great event. One of the options they offer is to come for a long weekend while we celebrate Columbus Day in the United States. I will be the spiritual director for this op- portunity leaving Thursday, October 11, 2018 and returning Tuesday, October 16. Given the importance of Blessed Pope Paul VI in the development of The Second Vatican Council and the relevance of Archbishop Romero to so many of our wonderful Spanish Catholics on Long Island, it is my hope that you will be part of this pilgrimage community here in Rome. For further information and registration: http://www.pilgrimages.com/frmcnamara/
I hope that you can get away for this holiday weekend. In just a few days, you will have memories to last a lifetime. I look forward to spending this time with you as we can explore the great contribution Blessed Pail VI and Archbishop Oscar Romeo have made to our Catholic Faith.
May the Lord give you peace.
Rev. James M. McNamara - Spiritual Director, Pontifical North American College.
