Excerpt from Message

AIR MAIL 19/VIII/64 Italy is beautiful and Rome is wonderful as ever. We participated in His Holiness’ Mass at Castel Gandolfo Saturday, in a small church, and were at the General Audience Mass this a.m., so we have seen him twice quite close up, both times. Rome is warm, by our standards, so the sight-seeing goes slower, and there is so much to see! We hope to see [illegible] tomorrow. – It was rewarding to see our teenagers’ reaction to Lourdes. We state home Friday – and gladly, though our trip has been marvelous. – Only wish there had been more time for post cards! Love, Yvonne
