Pics from Budapest, Vienna and Prague

St. Matthews in Budapest.  
The Cathedral in Budapest.

Shot of the Parliament building in Budapest.  This place was amazing.
Yeah, enjoying the Hungarian food.
Farkas' people know how to cook.
Turns out they like President Regan as well.  This was at the edge of the city center market in Budapest.
Here are some long haired pigs.  Guess it is so cold there that they started growing long hair.  The pigs in
Michigan could use some of these genes right now eh?
Again, compliments to the Hungarians.  The biggest skating rink I have ever seen in my life.

Hmm.  Who is that guy looking off to nowhere in the booth at the Opera?  Yes, I admit it.  I went to the Opera. 

The Cathedral in Vienna was amazing.  Reaching to the heavens!

This was a pretty cool march of the soldiers in the palace in Prague.

The back side of the Cathedral in Prague which was inside the Kings palace walls.

Waiting for directions.
Know that I prayed for all of you as we visited all the holy spots in Budapest, Vienna and Prague.   Especially before the statue of the Infant of Prague.  I am ashamed to say that I do not have a picture of the real statue because I did not have a camera and my travel partners forgot as well.  But, the baby Jesus took joy in the prayers we prayed before Him for all of your intentions and for blessings upon the Diocese of Gaylord.  In a special way may the Carmelite nuns in Traverse City who have as their patron the infant of Prague be blessed.  They support our Diocese in prayer and we should thank God for that gift.  
In Jesus through Mary and Joseph, may you all have a fruitful Lent.
