It is so amazing to read about your life now and travels. A lot has changed since college. I know you will touch so many lives. Hopefully one day we will run in to each other again. Jessica and I now have 3 children, 2 boys and our new baby girl and live in Kansas City. Blessings!

My family will be staying in Chiusi June 13th. I would like to know if you know of any town around there that has a nice celebration for Corpus Christi. I have noted Orvieto after reading your blog. I was wondering if you know my cousin who is a teacher in Rome. I'm not sure what university but most priest that go to Rome for education know him. His name is Father Mark Attard. Just wondering. I would appreciate any information you would have about where to go to celebrate Corpus Christi near Chiusi and also the Trinity when we will be in Sestri Levante.

I don't know if you remember this, but I had met you on the streets of Rome looking for St. Agnes's Church. I am an American student studying in the Czech Republic, and then you guided me to the US Bishops Office of the Vatican to get papal audience tickets- which i got! Sr. Yvonne Mary over there gave my friend and I special sections tickets too- 3rd row!!! thank you for being such a providential tool in our pilgrimage...
And your probably wondering how I found your travel journal...well i was googling Divine Mercy Sunday in Krakow and your blog popped up, b/c i was looking for blogs to get an idea of the experience. I am kind of torn between going on Divine Mercy Sunday or not, b/c I was in Krakow only a month ago, and I was considering going to the Slovakian Mountains instead with my school. Is it worth the experience?
I don't have an account here, so if you could email me :)
GOD BLESS, you'll be in my prayers!

Thank you Eddie for the wonderful pictures! It's been 35 years since I traveled to Europe and your pictures took me back to those fun, youthful times. I came upon your travel journal quite by accident. After waking up in the middle of the night unable to sleep, I got up and began reading a book entitled "Stories of Padre Pio" and went to the computer in search of photos taken of San Giovanni Rotondo. Your pictures are unique in that they provide a more personal view than what you might find on a post card. It was like I was a fellow traveler. I was particularly inspired by the photos of St. Rita's, Cascia. I didn't know anything about this saint so I searched for information and found her story most encouraging. I am a mother who, like many others, prays for the spiritual health of our children. I feel as though I have found a friend in St. Rita. It was your travel journal that brought us together. Isn't it amazing how God uses us in ways we can't imagine. God bless you throughout your vocation and continue to use you for His service.

Hello Eddie! I came across your profile and I saw a priest outfit and you in front of St. Peter's Basilica and I had to stop and look at your profile! This past June I was in Rome for the first time and it is absolutely amazing! I loved it and really wish I could go back. I enjoyed your pictures of Rome as it brought back happy memories :D. Also of your pictures of Germany were I believe I will be traveling to this summer. I am Roman Catholic and am very happy you are studying to be a future priest. My prayers are with you and may God bless you abundantly as you fulfill whatever his will is for you.
Thank you again for your pictures, they are really great!

Wow, what a small world we live in!! Here I am on the computer checking out info and location of Basilica of St Rita in Cascia prior to our trip to Tuscany next week and I chance upon your website, click on it and find out you are a seminarian from Little Rock, AR! My huband, children and I lived in North Little Rock 14 years ago. We still correspond with several friends there, and I still miss our beloved Immaculate Conception Catholic Church and esp Monsignor John O'Donnell who is now retired. Many blessings and prayers to you while you are studying in Rome!!!

I was researching St. Rita of Cascia for my homily in tonight's Mass. I decided to look up Cascia and see where it is. To my surprise, I go to your website and I see a picture of this "priest." I thought, boy, that sure looks like Eddie. Upon further investigation, I discover that IT IS YOU!!! I will examine it more later. You are in my thoughts and prayers daily.

Eddie, the picture of your dorm room was a wake-up call to look at my clutter piles. Maybe we should send in either your mother or a HGTV team. God bless you and I do pray for you daily. Kathie bondy

Wow Eddie, the pictures are amazing. I bet seeing all of it in real life takes your breath away. And your classes are in Italian? Oh my. Thank you for sharing your experiences. I am so prayerfully happy that there are people like you who are called to study like this. My 7-year old says he wants to become a preacher ... I should show him your website! Kay
