First week of Advent....ending

This past week, we got the opportunity to be at Mary Mount International School for the first time, for 2-day book fair. This is an English Private School run by the Religious Sisters of the Sacred Heart. Besides Italians, a number of students are from countries like Japan, Korea, America.... A lot are children of ambassadors. The students are from kindergarden up to High School. However, mainly the students from the elementary school came for the fair. Besides English books, we brought along of course Italian materials and we can see that the children, teachers and even parents profitted from this book fair. It was a great joy to see the children, in their innocence, with interests and zeal. On our part, we are glad to be able to reach out to them through our mission.

WOW! It sounds like you have been having a few great adventures. That is great to hear that your feast day is the same day as Transfiguration!
Also, about the Scavi tour, it was ashame that the priest didn't just let you stay on and continue with the tour. You should see who you have to talk to in order to get a scavi tour. Wouldn't it be funny if (when you do go) the same priest sees you!?

Well, I better hit the books. Next week are finals. The sisters have allowed me to stay home so that I can study. God bless them!
