Italian Internet was down….

The entire wireless in Italy was down yesterday….So, to catch you up on what we have been doing….last night was the Hawaiian Mass at St. Paul’s Basilica…we will post videos and photos soon.  This morning, we left our camp site at 8:30 am for Leonardo Da Vinci Airport….We just arrived at Chicago O’Hare Airport 20 minutes ago and are waiting for our flight to L.A.  Last night, we had a small party with gelato and other Italian pies to celebrate the completion of our Ad Altare Dei requirements or AAD….the AAD is very hard to get and is a proud moment for the Catholic boys….. 

Please bare with us, we will post more videos shortly.
