Summertime in Southern Italy

This summer I'll be living with a host family working at a local parish in a small town in southern Italy called San Giovanni Rotondo. San Giovanni Rotondo is famous around the world as the home of Saint Pio da Pietrelcina.

I moved in and started at the parish more than a week ago (06/19). I had hoped to post earlier, but I've hit the ground running and have been quite busy.

Pray for me this summer as I continue this really unique experience, living and working so close to an incredible saint. But even more, learning to live, pray, laugh, and cry in a different culture all the time sharing the faith and being formed by those around me.
