The occasion for gathering for lunch was the brief visit of our friend, Father Vincent Nagel, FSCB. Cristina graciously opened her home and prepared a tasty lunch. Father Vincent is a California native and a member of the Missionary Fraternity of Saint Charles Borromeo (FSCB), a fraternity of priests of pontifical right founded on the work of Communion & Liberation; the priests serve in Denver, Washington, DC, Rome, Moscow and a host of other places. The fraternity is growing by God's grace! 

Father Vincent currently works in the Holy Land as the personal assistant to the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, Archbishop Fouad Twal. The visit was a wonderful opportunity to connect with friends and to hear a few brief stories on the situation in the Holy Land: this is particularly important for us to see how Christ works in our reality today. Many thanks to Cristina who labors hard for meetings of friends like this one!

Hey!!! Follow the progress of the 30th Rimini Meeting working under the theme of Knowledge is always an event.

Particularly fascinating to me are the photos of the events which speak a 1000 words. Remember to keep the Meeting in your daily prayer to the Holy Spirt: It's an opportunity to meet Christ!

Given the hard and beautiful of work that has transpired over three decades in putting the Meeting together, a 2-part video presentation takes us through the highlights. See 30 years of the Rimini Meeting: A Review --part 1 and part 2.

If you care to watch some of the Meeting on TV if you can manage Italian and Spanish.

Take a look at what's on deck for the program and notice the variety of speakers... the program can be found here which I recommend your perusing.

Pope Benedict XVI said at the Angelus: "Today the 30th edition of the 'Meeting for Friendship Among Peoples'  has opened in Rimini, [Italy], taking as its title 'Knowledge Is Always an Event.' In addressing a cordial greeting to those who are taking part in this significant gathering, I hope that it will be a propitious occasion for understanding that '[k]nowing is not simply a material act, since ... [i]n all knowledge and in every act of love the human soul experiences something 'over and above,' which seems very much like a gift that we receive, or a height to which we are raised' (Caritas in Veritate, No. 77)."
