On Pilgrimage

"At only fifteen years old, I stepped into St. Peter’s Square for the first time. And although I didn’t know it then, my life would never be the same, thanks to that piazza.  

I know I was abundantly blessed to have parents who realized importance of this, even to the point of taking me out of school for two weeks so that I could travel to France and Italy. I don’t take for granted the opportunities I’ve been given to travel over the last 20 years. It is a grace, undeserved, and it’s why I (1) strive to never take it for granted and (2) pray on my travels for those who ask for prayers, particularly those who are unable to see and touch these places."
