Mass at 7:30 pm; a group of pilgrims who showed up just as Mass ended--they were Spanish teachers, from all over the country, in town for a meeting, and they'd walked up to Immaculata from downtown! We talked a bit after Mass, and they took lots of pictures of our beautiful church.
After Mass, I walked over to...well--I'd rather not say, so I don't play favorites. But I walked over to one of the places on The Hill, to get something cold to drink, and something to eat. The fellow behind the bar, it turns out, played baseball in college; so we talked a bit about the Reds.
The Reds won! You can definitely hear the fireworks up here. It was a lot of fun watching all our guys come up to bat and hit home runs, one after another.
