Excerpt from Message

Dear Reverend Mother, and Mothers, We were awed by the greatness and beauty of St. Peter’s. Kathy and I kissed the foot of the statue on this card, since it’s a Catholic custom here – Our “pensione” is right on the Piazza Trinita dei Monti so we’ve visited Mater almost daily. Much love, Charlotte Gratefully, Catherine [illegible] – Lena Kathy, also with love
