Everybody has their favorite month of the year. May has always been mine. Lilacs, First Communions, the month of Our Lady.
Today it was nice to swim in the new pool of the Gran Meliá Rome. From the gardens the top of the dome of St. Peter's Basilica can be seen. This 5 star hotel was formerly a convent, converted a few years ago into a luxury hotel. This is happening more and more in Italy with the decline in vocations. The Church is in need of religious vocations in Italy!
