Getting Ready for Vatican Blogging 2nd May

Bags nearly packed ! 

I know of Rocco Palmo, ( Whispers In The Loggia) Elizabeth Scalia, ( The Anchoress)

and Federico Lombardi S.J. ( photo on left : Director of the Holy See Office, Head of Vatican Radio and TV - some info on him here but none of the other names on the panels ring a bell so will need to do some research. . 

My first thoughts on seeing the agenda was that it is a long way to go for a relatively short programme but because it's scheduled the day after the Beatification that may be a good enough reason- attention spans are likely to be short.

That means more time for shopping and pasta .. oh and praying of course !
