When In Rome, tweet as the Romans do....

I'll be leaving Saturday from Minneapolis and arrive in Rome this Sunday, 8 am.  I will be attempting to tweet through the experience, but we'll see how that works.  And I'm not tweeting through masses, people.  I'm actually a luddite at heart who became accustomed to social media largely through learning to teach hyper-wired college students, as well as through Sic's web development side work.  But luddite or not, I will try my best to get a picture of the Crescat with a Swiss Guard.  And perhaps talk her down.  Although she is picturing Thelma and Louise, I'm afraid I'm more of an ironic Jiminy Cricket type. 

If you want to follow me on Twitter, click here.  If you like twitter, you can see what everyone is tweeting by searching through the term #vaticanblognic .  If you don't do twitter and want to know what's going on, check the Twitter widget on the left sidebar of the IC website.  And if I'm good, I may even blog a bit, and Sic (spouse of the Ironic Catholic, of course) has said he will try to post as well (although the man is watching our four young kids!).

Prayers appreciated.  Thanks for all the good wishes and more--I've been mightily humbled by the positive response to it all.  Easter peace everyone, and see you soon--virtually or in person!

p.s. big news when I get back about little Anthony, the boy with CP who needs a family--more on this later but you can preview it here!

If they give out goodie bags, you can have mine!

I really wish I could have made it to the conference, but by the time I received notice I was invited I couldn't get permission from my Provincial to attend.

God's blessing and safe travels!
