Last summer, I was selected for the Greece & Turkey pilgrimage with Lino Rulli and The Catholic Guy Show! However, when the Beatification of Pope John Paul II was announced, our travel coordinator and my very good buddy The Catholic Traveler did some fast rearranging to include it in our itinerary.
Want to hear some true hilarity from Rome? Tune in Friday, April 29 from 4pm-7pm EDT when Lino and the CGS Crew will be broadcasting the show live from the Vatican. Also, join The Catholic Channel on Sunday, May 1 for coverage of the Beatification of Pope John Paul II. Starting at 4:00 AM ET, Father Dave Dwyer and my good friend Father Rob Keighron will anchor live coverage of the Beatification Ceremony, celebrated by Pope Benedict XVI, from the Vatican.
I’ll be doing some live updates from Rome, Greece and Turkey throughout the whole trip – check it out on my Facebook page and on my Twitter feed (@CatholicDrinkie). I’ll probably be using Twitter more heavily as it is less of a data-suck throughout the trip. Hey, I’m paying for international data, but I don’t wanna go over my allotted amount!
Please pass along any petitions for which you would like us to pray at the Beatification and the other holy sites we will be visiting.
Here are some additional resources to keep up with the trip:
- Lino Rulli – host of The Catholic Guy Show and a man with a large nose;
- The Catholic Guy Show – M-F 4-7:00 ET on The Catholic Channel, Sirius 159 & XM 117;
- The Catholic Traveler – our travel guide, coordinator of Catholic pilgrimages and educational tours of Europe.
- The Practicing Catholic – blog by a husband and wife who are amazing examples of faith and marriage;
- Emmaus Road – the Catholic voice of Houston Belief, written by pilgrim (and my roommate!) Kristan;
- My Recovery – My Motivation – blog written by pilgrim John, accident survivor and motivational speaker.
I’ll be posting my adventures at holy sites, bars and general hilarity … let me know if you want any specific updates!
