Hello Family and Friends,
From this set of ruins we continued to the old village of Corinth where we celebrated Mass in the most spectacular setting, under the shade of olive trees with ancient temple ruins in the background listening to today's first reading from Paul's Letter to the Corinthians. What an amazing experience listening to Paul talk to us in the words that he wrote for these same people sitting in their village almost 2000 years later. Listening to the this reading and the Gospel, you could just visualize the people back then hearing these messages of the good news of Jesus Christ. I don't think any one of us will ever hear the Letters to the Corinthians without thinking of this special day that we spent in this beautiful ancient city. Tomorrow we head off on our cruise, so you may not see a post for 2 or 3 days. We'll be back soon!
